This old Pullman car is at a place called Dollar Settlement near lake superior west of Brimley. Some people have said the car was supposed to be converted into a diner but it never happened and it just sits there miles away from any railroad track. I have never been able to find out what the purpose of Dollar Settlement was for. The town of Dollarville was near Newberry and was named for Robert Dollar who owned a lumber company. I wonder if Dollar Settlement is where they loaded the ships with lumber for transport around the Great Lakes. I have never been able to confirm that.
