Thank You to Gregg and Pete

Thanks to Gregg for knowing how to do the research and to Pete Mayor...he gave me the courage to ask for help ... it is hard to admit that I didn't keep proper location records. As a younger railfan it never occured to me that details of my photo trips would be forgotten...I didn't plan ahead.

New MSU 1964 - Where Is It

Perhaps this train has brought a group to MSU for a football game ?????

Don't remember the event and I'm not sure about the location. Could it be the siding to the 'old' power plant off Shaw Road ????
