April 9, 1887                             Saturday  The First Train Kaufman and Sons are selling tickets for the first DSS and A train, and a glance at the crow in front of their store every day now will show what a rush there is to see the train arrive and depart. The track is a little heavy, the ballast being poor. The train manages to make scheduled time and proves such an attraction that a special policeman will be necessary on that part of Front street. Grown people, as well as children stop to watch a real steam locomotive, not ten inches long, whizz around on its circular track, pulling its train as well as any mogul. The cars are marked DSS and A in honor of the new road. The train is the best window attraction to be seen in Marquette.
