SERVICE

Lake Superior & Ishpeming #22
2-8-0, American Locomotive Co., construction #46944, 1910
LS&I #22 served her entire life in the Marquette area of the upper peninsula of Michigan. She was built by the Pittsburgh works of American Locomotive Company for the Marquette & Southeastern as their #38 in 1910. One year later, the M&SE became the Munising Marquette & Southeastern, and she retained her number 38. In 1924, MM&SE was merged into the Lake Superior & Ishpeming, and she became LS&I #22. The LS&I was based at Marquette, Michigan where ore was delivered to a dock for loading into Great Lakes ships.

In 1963, LS&I #22 was sold, along with many other LS&I locomotives, to a local tourist line called Marquette & Huron Mountain. #22 worked in service for M&HM during 1964-65 (her final run was on Labor Day of 1965). In 1984, M&HM suspended operations, and their equipment was sold at auction. #22 and sister #29 were purchased by Mid-Continent members and moved to North Freedom along with several cars. #22 is currently under restoration by its owners. Boiler work has been completed except for new tubes to meet FRA regulations.
