The former LS&MS line, later NYCS, later Penn Central, actaully looking west along Clinton Street in Lansing's Old Town. Final run of the remaining old NYCS line passenger train between North Lansing and Hillsdale, which was mixed trains 64/65, was made in 1934. All in Lansing, Ingham County. Also , please note below the crossbucks sign is another sign stated "EXEMPT" That's mean the CATA busses and the Lansing Public Schools busses are allow to cross without stopping.

It's on CSX, east of Lake Odessa somewhere, not on the plymouth-flint section, and track here is single track.

Is it on what remains of the old branch to Ionia? Grand Ledge IIRC.

Yes, it's at the Hawk Meadow Park on the north side of Delta River Drive, just east of Ingersoll Road in Delta Township, Eaton County, just west of Lansing. South of BL I-96 (Grand River Road). CSX RR Plymouth Sub can be seen in the distance. The floating bridge over the unamed lake looking north toward the former C&O Railway trackage. A old late neighborhood friend of my late dad, and his family lived in house on Bradford Lane in the Willowbrook Estates about a mile directly south of the park in Delta Township, until he passed away July 8, 2006 ten years later that Bradford Lane house was sold.

Correct Dave. Was out running errarnds with a buddy of mine in Lansing, said he wanted to walk in a nearby park, saw the bridge, headed that direction and when I got there, I told him "I know this spot! I've seen this on google maps before when looking for spots to possibly get train photos from one day."

Well, now I need to do some exploring. Not that I'll ever be lucky enough to catch a train there though.

Please do JT. There's a few trees/brush there that need your attention. A late running q328 would be great to get in the morning about now.
It's funny, when I was there, I told TheVariance that JT needed to come and clear brush :)

There are few clues in this one but I get the feeling someone will nail it.
