I thought this would be easy, but by the time I cropped it down enough to meet the size requirement, I'm not so sure...

Somewhere on the old ROW of the former C&O Railway between Yale and Port Huron.

You didn't want to just click to resize the photo instead of cropping it then?

I'm posting from my phone, which doesn't have the capability to resize images like my computer does. The only option I had to get the file size down was to crop the image. It'll just add to the challenge, I guess.

Rodney, this was not taken near Yale- the one in Michigan or the "education" institution of the same name.

No. It's not in Sanilac, St. Clair or Huron counties. Bonus hint: it's not on Oakland county either.

The ballast looks to be in good condition, so maybe a line that was taken care of till recently removed from service.

It looks like the abandoned (or railbanked) part of the ELS around Rockland. Up in the UP

I see tall trees, hills, and grass. Too nice to be the scrubby bushy look of the UP.

And I don't think E&LS's tracks are ballasted that nicely either. But, Michael is pretty good at guessing so maybe he's right.

Sorry guys, I was a little tied up yesterday... As far as I know, the track was removed from this location and won't be going back in. It's in the lower peninsula, and the objects on the hill in the distance may be a clue where this was taken.

Thanks for blowing up the shot, Pixl. It's not always easy for me to post shots from my phone.

In Lenawee, Branch , St. Joseph, Cass and Berrien counties?

ARR, please note the Cold Water and Sturgeon are incorrectly spell. Correct spelling Coldwater and Sturgis.

Rockland area was just a wild guess based on looking at this crossing on Google below.

Cass County? Isn't that in Indiana? It's not from Indiana.

Sorry Michael, it's not Rockland. SD80MAC or Trainwatcher should know where this is.
