Map of Michigan Paper Railroads (3-21-12)

Unread post by Saturnalia »

Here is the map:
Image

I didn't put on trackage rights because they would be hard to see and would make the image very sloppy....therefor, the DR&EC isnt shown......sorry about that :( . However, every black colored line is available, so you get first pick if you want too....you can have my claim in the UP even. (I took that because I want to buy it, knowing that he ma want it). So, after he picks, it'll be open season!

Please reserve this thread for any corrections or updates...PLEASE FIGURE THOSE OUT IN THE OTHER THREADS THAN POST THE FINAL DECISION HERE....

We'll take a couple shortlines around Detroit and the line up to the port to Canada(north of Detroit) plus the new GR&P interchange west of Detroit, this is for the DT&C.

Yep, that's it. I have rights already going to all the other places I need, so I'm good.

my main concern is: how are you going to get there? fly? sing "twinkle, twinkle little star"? bow down and say: "OMG MQT3001 you are AWESOME!!!"? :lol:

Yup, furthest north-east. I don't have the track going south from Port Huron, so you can have rights over the DR&EC to get there if you want.

Here is the updated map, without DT&I's CN line he thinks for some reason he can reach :roll: :

Yellow is the DR&EC....black is all up for grabs, but I'd think the GDLK and the rest of the Indiana Northeastern should go to Atrain...proposal coming shortly....
