Yes, it's in between Edsel & De Soto avenues in Inkster, Wayne County. The shot above is looking west between the main roads of Inkster and John Daly. The NS/Amtrak Michigan Line are on the far right (not visibel) on which the three Amtrak trains in each direction are operating on between Pontiac and Chicago. Trains 351, 353 and 355 are the westbounds and trains 350, 352, and 354 are the eastbounds. That building with the white tank truck was the Hamler Industries.

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.


There are 3 customers on this trackage. Alpha Resins, MAC, and Winston Bros.



ConrailDetroit, is Metro Corp and MAC both the same?

No idea what the business name is now, but back in the day it was known as Tanner Industries, they received a tank car of ammonia every so often.

Another question, CRD. I see Metro Alloys Corp. has a spur but there are no cars on it. Would you happen to know what kind of commodities they ship?

Dexter, looking southeast under the NS/Amtrak Line. That's the Cut Stone Arch Bridge, Island Lake Road/Main Street where the other arch bridge located on the right of the above shot. All in Dexter, Washtenaw County. Three Amtrak trains in each directions pass through Dexter and very little freight trains on the NS pass through also. Mill Creek Park North on the other side of the bridge.

Yes, that's Newberry on the CN RR (former DSSS&A RR, former Soo Line) Munising Sub looking west with M-123 in the distance in Newberry, Luce County. Final run of the remaining old DSS&A passenger train between Ishpeming and St. Ignace daily except Sundays, was made on January 12, 1958.

I only posted this spot because I like when Google Street View catches a moving train.
Not many clues in the photo itself but it won't surprise me if someone gets it right away.

Nice if that's it. I pulled up the map earlier, looked at Harrison in Lansing, saw it wasnt it, and fell asleep in my chair. Woke and you got it :)
