Eh, it was worth a try. I'm not very familiar with most of the west side of the state.

Looking at Atlanta in Google Maps, I can see the grade running in from the east almost to Pettenger Rd, so I'll guess that road.

Yahoo! But I still don't know if I guessed where ConrailDetroit was standing for the previous picture. I'd like to know if I get any of the promised bonus points. :D

This tiny hamlet was the site of 2 different railroads at one time. Now 1 rail trail and 1 somewhat active line pass through.

Yes, indeed taken west of Clark Street on the Conrail SA. Final run of the three Amtrak trains in each direction between Scotten and West Detroit, was made on December 15 , 2015 when these trains were rerouted via the new northwest connection at West Detroit including the new bridge over Junction Street. All in Detroit, Detroit City School district, Wayne County.

No they did not cross in town. They ran parallel. That was going to be my hint if no one guessed it right off the bat. :)
