Warren & Saline River RR

Warren was served by the St Louis Iron Mountain & Southern by branch line. The Johnson Brothers built their mill and Warren and decided they wanted their own connection and started to build a line south to the Rock Island at Hermitage, a distance of 16 miles. The Warren Johnsonville & Saline River RR was chartered in 1905 and included a 5 mile branch to Johnsonville. In addition there was about 15 miles of logging branches for a total of 36 miles. In 1921 the road was reorganized as the W&SR. In June 1959 it was purchased by Potlatch Forests.  In 1978 it added two miles of former Warren & Ouachita River trackage at Warren, and in 1985 it abandoned the track between Cloquet and Hermitage. Total mileage is now 8 miles. Apparently there was never any passenger service, and there seems to be no record that the line ever had a profitable year.

1702 was built by Baldwin in September 1942, #64641, as U. S. Army 1702.  It was purchased by W&SR in 1946 and was sold to Reader RR as 1702 in June 1964.  It was then sold to Fremont & Elkhorn Valley RR as 1702 in August 1985 and then to Great Smoky Mountains RR as 1702.
