A short-lived tourist line in "da U.P." was the Keewenaw Central. Several pieces of equipment have been saved from this line, many or all at Mid Continent Railway Museum. One C&NW steam locomotive remains in derelict condition up there.

This blog post told me more than I ever knew about the line before:

Here is the C&NW steamer you mentioned, lettered for NP for some reason: http://www.steamlocomotive.info/vlocomo ... isplay=651

The CNW steamer in question lost it's original tender (Due to deterioration?) And was replaced with a tender from a NP loco, explaining the Northern Pacific lettering.
