Yes, it's the Shell service Station (formerly BP Service Station) which is also the Indian Trails bus depot on US-2 and US-41 as well as M-35 at Lake Shore Drive which is on the other side of that gas station in Gladstone, Delta County in the da UP. Its looking southeast towards Little Bay de Noc which flows into Lake Michigan. The track in the foreground is the CN RR main line (formerly the Soo Line, later Wisconsin Central RR, later UP RR). S' Hill Road can be seen in the foreground. Final run of the remaining passenger train on the former Soo Line between Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN and the Soo (Sault Ste Marie) with stop in Gladstone for passengers and crew change, was made on March 5, 1960. However the Soo Line mixed train contiuned between Gladstone and the Soo until was took over by the WC, now CN. The old Soo Line depot is located just northwest of the above shot. That Shell station which also use as the Indian Trails bus station are serve by four bus runs (two runs each direction). The westbound bus from St. Ignace to Duluth, MN with no stop at Gladstone, the eastbound Duluth to St. Ignace bus do stop at Gladstone at 3:45am. The bus from Hancock, MI to Milwaukee, WI stops in Gladstone at 3:00am and the northbound bus from Milwaukee to Hancock stops in Gladstone at 4:00am. All four bus runs are operates daily.

You appear to be sitting on Lake Cadillac, looking east towards the Cadillac Depot and the GLC Ex- Ann Arbor Mainline.

Well you are correct. I thought a picture from the water would be a new angle not seen by many. But the quiz only lasted 6 minutes. :(

Yes, it's the Conrail SA Terminal West Industrial tracks (formerly Detroit Terminal RR) run between Conrail SA North yard and Gallagher Street. The shot above is looking east towards Mound Road. Ryan Road is the crossing west. The only rail customer on that trackage is the Alpha Resigns on the east side of Ryan Road, directly across the tracks from the Ryan Correctional Facility. All in Detroit, Wayne County.
