Marquette Rail has formed a subsidiary WMIC, to look into building & operating an Inter-urban line between Grand Rapids, Walker, Allendale, Hudsonville, Zeeland & Holland. The above cities and some nearby private funds have assembled a fund of an un-announced size to study a route.

More info soon.

Proposed Route, with Stations.

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=21 ... 99,0.00284

Mainline is Grand Rapids to Holland comes complete with a loop track. Holland also has a proposed Beach Spur to Holland State Park, but cost may be prohibitive, at least for now. Tracks use Utilitiy, Street, and Exsisting Railway Rights-of Way for most of the journey.

Note Hudsonville has been bypassed, but the city has been dropped a line to look into building a spur with loop.

Again, this is all fiction :lol:
