CN - Jackson Creek Bridge
Posted January 15, 2021, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Reportedly, Canadian National is looking at selling 850 miles of low density track in Wisconsin, Michigan and Ontario. The line between Marengo Jct (WI) and White Pine, MI seems to be on the sale block as well. This includes not only this bridge, but the two massive viaducts in Wisconsin and some smaller viaducts as well. This line has been out of service for some time, so the future looks mighty bleak for this particular line..
