Old PRR Section House at Sturgis

In the southwest quadrant of the Sturgis diamond is this former PRR section house. This view looks north up the old PRR toward the diamond and beyond, with the two relic boxcars and tankcar at the far end in the distance. Rails are still in place from a service door on the building perpendicular to the mainline for a speeder or hand car to be wheeled out from the building and then lifted onto the rails. Today, Michigan Southern operates trains on both the "Old Road" and this portion of the old PRR. 5-8-07
