Reminders of the Milwaukee & Northern
The Milwaukee & Northern (M&N) was built and operated between 1870 and 1893. It became the Superior Division of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul (CM&StP), or Milwaukee Road (MILW), after they took over the M&N in 1893. The MILW reorganized as the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific (CMStP&P) in 1928.
Seeing as most of the historic M&N right-of-way still supports active rails, we will collect and share photographs and information regarding contemporary railroad action along the line on this section of our web site.
These buttons will take you to sub-sections of the M&N system, so you can see what they look like today.
