What happened to the rail equipment formerly in North Muskegon? They now appear to be gone.

It appears there were three railcars:

DT&I Caboose 107
C&O MOW Car 910233
Ann Arbor Boxcar 1270

Not sure on the rest of it, but I swear I saw the caboose sitting along US31, somewhere north of Manistee. Maybee even north of Traverse City. Within a year after they moved the equipment out of N. Muskegon, I was heading north and remember seeing a caboose that looked just like it. Seems like it was in a hilly area, and was parked in somebody's front yard.

This one? I think that is #106.

I think there was a caboose in Alanson.

Mystery solved! #107 was moved to Empire.
I am still unsure of where the other cars went.
