Extension is finished

Transcription of newspaper article from the Daily mining journal (Marquette, Mich.), Nov. 26, 1892, regarding the Duluth, South Shore, and Atlantic Railway company., Daily mining journal (Marquette, Mich.), Source:  The Mining Journal Marquette, Mi. November 26, 1892  The Extension is Finished  As prophecied by a prominent official some weeks since, the track laying forces on the DSS and A had a chance to eat turkey in West Superior Thursday, the last rail between Ruthmoore and Atlantic Junction being laid during the forenoon, giving the South Shore its own tracks from St. Ignace and Saul Ste. Marie to West Superior.  The ballasting is well up except on the west end where for ten or twelve miles no gravel was obtainable.  Now that the gravel pits at this end of the extension are available for the entire distance the two steam shovels will be kept on the jump and 200 or 300 men will be employed in shoveling the ballast under the track as fast as possible in order to get the track in good condition before the weather becomes much cooler.  Passenger trains will not be put on over the extension, probably until Sunday, December 4, when a new time card is to be put on, but freight trains will begin using the track in a very few days as the South Shore is not much impresed with the advantages of turning business over to other railroads with junctionpoints in order to get it through to Superior.  The merchants and jobbers of Superior are arranging with the management of the road for an excursion over the extension some time next week to get the people of the towns along the line acquainted with Superior and its business men.
