Michigan - Detroit Zoo Railroad
Detroit, MI - The Tauber Family Railroad has been a favorite at the Zoo, serving nearly half a million passengers each year, since it was presented by The Detroit News in 1931. Since then, nearly half a million passengers have ridden the wonderfully fun miniature railroad each year. The locomotives were refurbished in 2008 with new coaches, rebuilt engines, gears, gauges, wheels and bodies. All aboard!

Today's train consists of two complete trains of six coaches each and one standby. All three locomotives were donated by the Chrysler Corp. in the 1950s. In 1982-83, the locomotives were renovated and new coaches were fabricated through a fund-raising campaign by The Detroit Zoological Society and The Detroit News.

Michigan - Lake Linden and Torch Lake Railroad
Lake Linden, MI - The Lake Linden and Torch Lake Railroad provides rides on its completed 4-tenth mile loop thanks to the many donations and volunteers. The Shenandoah Boy's Ranch of Arcadia, Missouri volunteered over 3 summers to lay ties and rail which were donated by the Lake Superior and Ishpeming of Marquette. The Sarazin Logging Company, using timber donated by Bob and Ruth Nara, completed the trestle near Torch Lake. This provides a beautiful view of Torch lake and the Lake Linden Village Marina. Under the leadership of Brian Keeney, the railroad operates its 0-4-0 Porter No. 3 steam engine each Sunday from Noon to 4 pm. The museum's gas/hydraulic Plymouth engine operates on Saturdays from 10 am. to 4 pm. as well as weekdays when needed.

The Houghton County Historical Museum Complex in Lake Linden was once the site of the largest copper milling operation in North America. Today, it is home to our Museum, and also to the Lake Linden & Torch Lake Railroad, the one room Traprock Valley School House, the WPA era Leo Chaput Log Cabin and the Perl Merrill Research Center (which is our archives and genealogical facility). The HCHS Heritage Center, a former Congregational Church building built in 1887, is just around the corner.

We are located on M-26 in Lake Linden, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Museum building offers three floors of exhibits of local Copper Country mining, logging and cultural history. Included among the outdoor exhibits is a working Calumet & Hecla Mining Co. train with a 3í gauge Porter steam engine that was used to transport various materials at their mill and smelter sites. The steam train is now used for passenger tours and interpretation of the milling operation.
