Lake Superior & Ishpeming #64
Coach, Hicks Locomotive & Car Works, June 1910
The Hicks Locomotive and Car Works of Chicago Heights, Illinois built this wooden coach for the Munising Railway as their #64 in May of 1910. The Munising Railway Company was a shortline formed in 1895 and operated two rail lines, one running from Princeton to Munising, and a second from Stillman to Cusino, all in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Munising Railway was later absorbed into what became the Lake Superior & Ishpeming Railroad in 1923. At that time, #64 came under LS&I ownership, retaining its original number. Passenger service ended on the LS&I in 1929, and #64 was retained for work service. In 1964, it was sold to Marquette & Huron Mountain, a tourist railroad located at Marquette, Michigan. In 1985, it was purchased by Mid- Continent and moved to North Freedom with other equipment acquired from the now-defunct M&HM. #64 is presently stored for future restoration.
