Yes, that's Tesch in Bark River Township, Delta County. The old Soo Line RR crossed the two C&NW lines. Final run of the remaining passenger train service on the old Soo Line through Tesch, between Minneapolis-St. Paul and Sault Ste Marie, MI, was mad on March 5, 1960.

Agreed! Williamsburg, MI looking east along Old M-72 towards that town in Whitewater Township, Grand Traverse County. About 15 miles east of Traverse City. Final run of the remaining old C&O Railway passenger train train nos. 27/28 between Traverse City and Petoskey with stops at Williamsburg, Rapids City, Alden, and Charlevoix, was made on Saturday, September 1, 1962. Four years and almost a month later on October 29, 1966 the balance of that passenger train which were train nos. 25/26 between Grand Rapids and Traverse City, MI, made its final run.

I moved into the TC area in the early 70's. I recall seeing an engine or two running that track in that area back to Traverse City about 1977 or so. I don't know what they were doing, maybe an inspection of the track about to be pulled up. Anyone else see that movement or know what it was doing?

There is a small shed next to the tracks that may have been intended to transload canned/bottled cherries but I don't know if it was ever used for that.

I remember the shed AARR mentioned. If I recall correctly the shed was a loading point for outbound fruit and/or products. I believe that the frozen fruit plant in Elk Rapids was the intended user. I am thinking the operation only lasted a short time if it was even used.

I know because I have been to that area quite a few times to visit a place about a mile to the west.

McIntyre St Golden CO. Those looked like beer cars. So Coors just up the road from the Colorado Railroad Museum seemed a likely first choice.

I knew that looked familiar. Drove over that bridge back in 2012.
