Fall on the Quincy Tram

A bright fall color scene with a rail line leading down a hillside, towards the Portage Lake Lift Bridge.
The New Quincy & Torch Lake Railroad

This beautiful fall scene comes to you from the top of Quincy Hill. The rail line here is the new Quincy & Torch Lake Railroad, which runs a tourist tram down to an old mine entrance. The old Q&TL RR ran along the crest of Quincy Hill, running mine rock down from the mine to the Quincy Mill and bringing coal back up.

The bridge here is the Portage Lake Lift Bridge, a major local landmark which looks extra pretty in blue. Enjoy!
