Going to venture down the Plymouth Sub tomorrow, hopefully, to shoot Q329 between some searchlights. I don't want to venture too far from Grand Rapids, so where is the closest searchlight to Grand Rapids? Is it Lake Odessa?

Everything from EE Lake Odessa to Ensel - exclusive - is searchlights.

Happy hunting!

With the exception of Ensel to North Lansing, and a few random intermediates east of there, everything from Lake Odessa to Beck Road in Plymouth is search lights.

Technically, at the moment there is modern equipment (not searchlights) from the intermediate west of Ensel at the Airport to MA Jct, inclusive. An exception is a lone searchlight installation for westbounds at Ensel on a high mast. Also, the signals at the two junctions east of Ensel are safe trans equipment but use C&O signal rules, displaying the high red over low red stop aspect and others typical of the “old C&O” south of Michigan. More then you wanted to know! :lol:

IIRC, there’s a triple headed searchlight guarding Trowbridge

Most of the sidings have 3 headed signals.
