Wow, the image stitching is way out of line on that frame. The rail in the pavement should align with the strip of grass that has grown up next to the rail.

Not to mention this view:

Its not the Holly sub or the Manistee area. As far as your observation about clutter, some of those might be golf balls 8)

So it's not CN Holly Sub or Manistee. How about CSX near Northville / Novi? Or is it Milford?
