Yes, that's Salt Creek Bridge on the UP RR trackage over both the Salt Creek and Oregon highway 58, 14 miles south of Oakridge, OR., is also use by the current Amtrak train nos. 11/14 the Coast Starlight, between Seattle, WA and Los Angeles, CA with stops at Eugene, Chemult and Klamath Falls, OR. Oakridge is midway between Eugene and Klamath Falls. And it is in Lane County, OR. That bridge built in 1924.

Looks like either the GT Bridge over the Maple River (?) as you are heading east out of Muir/Ionia or the PM Bridge over the Grand River just south of Ionia.

Yup, its the former GTW RR, former Central MI RR bridge over the Maple River, east of Muir. Final runs of the remaining passenger trains no. 22/57 between Durand and Muskegon through Muir, was made on October 1, 1960. In Lyons Township, Ionia County. It's now the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail.

This is the intersection of Carpenter Rd and Center Valley Dr, near the I-94/US-23 interchange. This the former ROW of the Detroit, Hillsdale, and Indiana. The location would either be Ann Arbor or Pittsfield Twp.

Yes, it's the old NYC RR, later Penn Central RR Ypsilanti Branch that ran between Ypsi and Hillsdale until its abandonment in 1969. Its looking southwest across Carpenter Road (old US-23) in Pittsfield Township, Washtenaw County. Its looking southwest along the former Ypsi branch toward the US-23/I-94 interchange. I think it had just crossbucks signs on Carpenter Road. One remaining rail customer on that branch at the time of the abandonedment and that was the Bridgewater Lumber Co. about two miles west of Saline. The segment between Bridgewater and North Adams was abandoned in 1962.

I don't think that Google Streetview is available where the unpaved road I'm standing on crosses the railroad.

Between Canton and Plymouth on the CSX Saginaw Sub or between Howell and Fowlerville on the CSX RR Plymouth Sub.

Here's is one for GTW fans. The track was partially still in place in the early 80's along with the brick building. The city will be easy to guess away at but can you pin down the exact location? Check the old maps.

The yard tracks in the picture were pulled up in the 80's. Train still pass on both sides of this location but none of them are CN.
