Looks like it's on the Muskegon Shore, possibly up toward Fremont.

It is not on either one of those railroads. Not even on the west side of the state.

Thanks, I thought IORY might be only railroad left but wasn't sure because of the shotgun guesses by 1949. It's just above the OH border on Yankee Rd.

Yeah, I forgot one more shortline railroad. Anyway, here's the rest of the story That's the Indiana & Ohio Railway, former DT&I, former GTW. That railroad interchange with the CN Flat Rock Sub at Diann, southeast of Dundee. The shot above is looking southwest toward the Ohio border. That former fertilizer dealer on the right in the photo above was located at 13020 Crockett Highway, Blissfield, MI 49228. It's on the east side of Crockett Highway, just south of E. Yankee Road in the Blissfield Community Schools, Ogden Township, Lenawee County. It's about 20 miles south of Blissfield.

A step back in time to I think 1913. The track is there today and in daily use. The bridges have been replace with culverts. The depot is gone. The building who's roof this was shot from is still there.

Is this the GTW in Grand Rapids? I don't know the names of the streets. I think the line going up the picture was to GR Press.

The line going up the picture looks like a road rather than a RR. But I'll follow your lead and look around GR.

The deck bridge in the foreground carried the railroad. The truss bridge carried a road which today is a state highway. It's not the GTW in Grand Rapids. But it's the right side of the state.

Not Millington, wrong side of the state. If you're scouring satellite images the creek the bridges cross is there but shrouded in trees.

I suspect the Grand Rapids posse have all past this spot.

Is it the Adrian & Blissfield, in Blissfield?

EDIT: whoops. Guess I should have read PatAzo's responses a little closer before posting. :oops:
