Somewhere on HESR's Brown City Sub? Perhaps just east of Marlette?

Yes, it's the Mid Michigan RR line crossing Brennan Road, looking south in Hemlock on the left and Richland Township on the right, Saginaw County. Passenger train service on the former C&O Railway Elmdale Sub, was discontinued many, many years ago, between Grand Rapids and Saginaw via Elmdale and Hemlock.

Yes, that's about 10 miles northeast of Pinconning on the Lake States Railway line to Alpena. Saganing Eagles Landing Casino can be seen on the right. Looking northeast from the Worth Road crossing in Standish Township, Arenac County. Final run of the remaining old D&M Railroad passenger trains between Bay City and Alpena pass by that location in -Z-'s shot above, was on March 31, 1951.

Yes, it's the Dawn Foods Plant at the left on Nicor Dr. looking southeast across the former LS&MS (later old New York Central, later Penn Central) branch between Lenawee Junction and Jackson via Tecumseh , Clinton and Manchester. Wellworth Park and the Grand River are both behind the photographer's current position. All in Jackson, Jackson County. Pasenger train service between Toledo and Jackson via Lenawee Junction, Clinton and Manchester, was discontinued in 1938. It's north of E South Street and west of US-127. It's now the NS rail spur to the Dawn Foods which is serve by a Jackson yard job.
