Yes, that's Salt Creek Bridge on the UP RR trackage over both the Salt Creek and Oregon highway 58, 14 miles south of Oakridge, OR., is also use by the current Amtrak train nos. 11/14 the Coast Starlight, between Seattle, WA and Los Angeles, CA with stops at Eugene, Chemult and Klamath Falls, OR. Oakridge is midway between Eugene and Klamath Falls. And it is in Lane County, OR. That bridge built in 1924.

Looks like either the GT Bridge over the Maple River (?) as you are heading east out of Muir/Ionia or the PM Bridge over the Grand River just south of Ionia.

Yup, its the former GTW RR, former Central MI RR bridge over the Maple River, east of Muir. Final runs of the remaining passenger trains no. 22/57 between Durand and Muskegon through Muir, was made on October 1, 1960. In Lyons Township, Ionia County. It's now the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail.

This is the intersection of Carpenter Rd and Center Valley Dr, near the I-94/US-23 interchange. This the former ROW of the Detroit, Hillsdale, and Indiana. The location would either be Ann Arbor or Pittsfield Twp.

Yes, it's the old NYC RR, later Penn Central RR Ypsilanti Branch that ran between Ypsi and Hillsdale until its abandonment in 1969. Its looking southwest across Carpenter Road (old US-23) in Pittsfield Township, Washtenaw County. Its looking southwest along the former Ypsi branch toward the US-23/I-94 interchange. I think it had just crossbucks signs on Carpenter Road. One remaining rail customer on that branch at the time of the abandonedment and that was the Bridgewater Lumber Co. about two miles west of Saline. The segment between Bridgewater and North Adams was abandoned in 1962.
