This day in Railroad History

June 25, 1998
The final Algoma Central Railway ore train consisting of 18 cars, rumbled from Wawa along the branch line to Hawk Junction and then down to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. In late 1997, Algoma Steel Inc. had announced that it would be shutting down its low grade ore mining operations in Wawa, in favour of higher grade ore from the Tilden Mine outside of Marquette, Michigan. The discovery of the iron ore deposit at Wawa by a prospector named Boyer was the catalyst for the steel industry in Sault Ste. Marie and a driving force of the Railway's construction starting in 1899.
