In General

Not much here 'cept for the north end of a siding, but it's kinda unique since it uses a spring switch.  Hard to see, but there is a dwarf searchlight signal controlling the siding for movements onto the mainline.  Looking at the map, the siding looks to be about 9,000 feet long.

I would like to give a big thanks to Jim Mihalek and his brother for the pictures.  Every year, they go out and document signals from the Minneapolis area (where Jim lives) down into Michigan and Ohio.  They do a great job and should be commended for their efforts!

Map is from Google Maps, and the aerial shots are from www.bing.com/maps

The snap-shots off of Bing and Google are made with Snagit, a Techsmith  product... a great tool if you have never used it!  Give it a try!

As always, if you have something to contribute, add or correct, click here


Getting Here


Take exit 128 off of I-94..... head SW into town on County Highway O, which turns into Mill Street.  After crossing the tracks, you hit US12, which parallels the track.  The towns population is 136 according to the 2000 census!
