The sea gate is up on the Chief Wawatam as a train car crosses the track apron, far left, that links the railroad tracks in St. Ignace to the boat.

The track elevator, a tall landmark when it stood on the Wawatam Dock, is small by comparison to the 338-foot-long railroad ferry. (Photograph courtesy of Vic and Mary Swiderski) 1p6.jpg
