Crooked Lake Express along 31 at Crooked Lake, just north of Petoskey. Cars are sitting on the old GR&I ROW.

Yes, indeed, the Crooked Lake Express on the northwest side of US-31, just north of Norh Conway Road, across US-31 from the Crooked Lake boat lauch parking lot on northwest shore of Crooked Lake in Oden, Little Traverse Township, Emmet County. Just about 65 feet east of the old GR&I ROW, now Petoskey to Mackinaw Trail. Just north of Petoskey. Final run of the remaining old Pennsylvania RR passenger train which ran from Cincinnati, OH to Mackinaw City on Fridays/early Saturday mornings only during the summer months, was made on Friday/early Saturday morning, September 1 and 2, 1961. And from Mackinaw City to Cincinnati, OH, was made on Monday (Labor Day)/Tuesday, September 4 and 5, 1961, was the final departure from Mackinaw City.

The “Crooked Lake Express does not rest on the former GR&I right of way. The ROW is about 65 feet farther from US-31 than the rail cars.

Your are correct the, Crooked Lake Express is near the Petoskey to Mackinaw trail but not on it. I saw that is was for sale last year too.
Rodney, good job on the Train Car of Terror. There is a caboose across the street as well https://www.oldwestescapecaboose.com/

Yes, it's Jones Chemical at the north end of Payne Avenue, just northwest off W. Jefferson Blvd. in Riverview, Wayne County. The spur to Jones Chemical is off the connection with the ex DT&I RR main line.

Somewhere along the CSXT trackage right on the CN between Flint and Port Huron? If not, hints please.

Just north of Flint, looking south from Groveland Avenue, just east off Dort Hwy. M-54, just north of the CSX RR bridge over M-54, south of the split with the former old main line to the old main Buick plants.
