Not Shipshawanna, but it is in the northern 1/3 of Indiana. Maybe that'll reduce it to 100/3 to 200/3 (33 to 66) of the railroad streets to check. School to the right, and left side of Railroad St is where the ROW once was.
More hints please!

Old copy of Russell's Motor Coach Guide 1957 and 1970.

Does anyone have a copy of the old spring, 1957 and old spring, 1970 issue of the Russell's Motor Coach Guides. If so, please scan and post online all Michigan bus schedules (Greyhound, North Star Lines, Short Way Lines) only from these two books. I sure really appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Jonesville Customers

At the other site in the History section a question was posted about Jonesville. The reason I placed it here is it was said there are no current customers in Jonesville. According to its address OmniSource is located in Jonesville. Perhaps they think it's in Hillsdale or don't know that OmniSource ...

Used to be the north leg of the Pontiac Wye and connection to the Cass City Sub. In the later years the south leg had been removed. IIRC the commute...
