Lake Superior & Ishpeming Railroad Lubrication Project (CE, CM)

Students from Transportation Enterprise worked with Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad (LS&I) to assess their existing rail lubrication infrastructure and provide recommendations for updating the system. Students familiarized themselves with not only rail lubrication practices but also rail related terminology and knowledge. During the field visit the student team identified potential problems in the track geometry and added investigation of ideal superelevations to the project.
