Yes, that's Whiting Street and the ex PH&D RR now CSX, in St. Clair, St. Clair County. Looking east toward downtown St. Clair and the St. Clair River. Between Cedar Street and Fred W Moore Highway in St. Clair. The former Port Huron & Detroit RR never have any regular passenger train at all.

Between Cedar Street and Fred W Moore Highway in St. Clair. Passenger train service on the ex PH&D RR between Port Huron and Marine City was discontinued many, many years ago.


There was regular passenger service on the PH&D? That's news to me as I'm pretty sure there was no passenger service on the line.

I had a pretty good idea with the silos in the picture but having the BWP trailer helped put it all together. That was a really good location you found.
