The northern Wisconsin railroad that links Ashland with Prentice is part of a sale of 650 miles of track formerly operated by the Wisconsin Central Limited then sold to the Canadian National Railroad.

Mellen Mayor Joe Barabe said it would be nice if the new owners of the Wisconsin Central Limited Lines decided to actually do something with the railroad tracks that run through Mellen from Ashland to Prentice.

“We haven’t had any trains run here since the floods in 2016,” he said.
