Correct. Empty Autoracks being stored at the Reserve Yard. Perhaps finished auto shipments are down.

Yup, it's S. Post Street, Detroit, Wayne County, looking north crossing the CSX/NS Union Belt main tracks between Delray and the old NS Boat Yard. Final runs of the old N&W Railway passenger train nos. 301/304, The Wabash, between Detroit FSUD and St. Louis, MO and the old C&O Railway passenger trains 11,12,14, and 15 between Detroit FSUD and Grand Rapids. were all made on April 30, 1971.

That MOW building has been there since I can remember. The tracks next to it are old lumber Spurs later used for MOW equipment. The switch was recently removed for these tracks, their future uncertain. I used to be able to see that area from an apartment I lived in for a few years with my dad as a small kid. Wonderful view I had for a few years as a kid watching both lines.

It appears we are looking at the depot in Kaleva, MI along with the former M&NE/PM switcher that was used on the Leelenau Senic RR.

it's definitely Kaleva, MI along with the former M&NE/PM/later C&O railroad line, looking south in the top shot and looking north in the bottom shot. That depot in these shots above was served by the remaining C&O Railway passenger train nos. 25/26 that ran between Grand Rapids and Traverse City daily except Sundays until its final run October 29, 1966.. Its between Manistee and Traverse City. In Kaleva, Maple Grove Township, Manistee County. Please note the passenger train that ran from Manistee, make a reverse move to the Kaleva depot to let and take on passengers and than headed north to Traverse City. On its southward rujn the pull in and stop at the depot and than made a back up move and then headed southwest to Manistee. and Grand Rapids.

North Lincoln Road, Escanaba, MI. Looking West along the former Chicago & North Western connection to the former P&H crane factory. The factory is now an industrial park which includes the Escanaba & Lake Superior car maintenance plant.
