Three men stand in the snow in front of the Wisconsin & Northern Railroad engine #2 (the second locomotive with this number) in the woods on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The line, 125 miles long from Neenah to Argonne, was built by lumber and wooden ware interests in Neenah and Menasha, in order to harvest the timber between these points. Engine #2 was purchased from the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railway.
