Hey all, been a while!
I actually don't know where this one is, but figured you guys would be the best people to ask. The image title implies that it's probably in California, but I can't find any other details from reverse image searches.
EXIF Data:
2835x1595 (Highest I can find)
(Supposedly) Taken on 06/07/2016 23:08. (Maybe it's in UTC?)
Canon EOS 5DS
f/5.6
1/500
26mm focal

In the bottom left, the sign on that building says "PRHS", but I haven't found any leads from it.
Thanks in advance! :D


Stockton, CA
Google image search shows this picture was used for a Benzinga article
Google search for PRHS truck service returned a no longer valid link on Manta that indicated Stockton, CA
A little bit of searching Google maps and ...

And I now see that your friend found it with the coordinates

Ha, I've parked one block south of where that photo was taken to do some pics. Many homeless walking around that area.

South ft meyers it is. It is located in a very large, very nice park with a caboose, a small rail museum, and a 7.5" gauge railroad. Highly recommend the stop for anyone in the area.

Definitely the Filling Station Microbrewery, Traverse City, Grand Traverse County. In the old C&O Railway passenger train depot that served by the remaining old C&O Railway passenger train nos. 25/26 between Grand Rapids and Traverse City, until its final run October 29, 1966. That place also have pizza. Boardman Lake and the Traverse Area District Library can be seen through the window in the above shot. That shot above is looking south.

Indeed, that's correct! The above shot is just south of the former American Bumper (now Ventra Ionia) Plant in Ionia on the east side of town, Ionia County. Final run of the remaining old GTW RR passenger train nos. 22/57 between Detroit and Muskegon with stop in Ionia, was made on October 1, 1960. The old ROW at the right is now the Fred Meijer Grand River Valley Trail.

This is a popular spot today. From a railroad prospective however an obscure and short lived branch. The people appear to be working on the track. The Muskegon River is behind them. The impressive trestle may have carried auto traffic and rail both. I have only found two photos of it and it looked like it had a planked deck. I believe this is looking southwest. The track came from the west dead ending here. The photo was dated 1931.

The Hardy Dam construction site. The map shows the track ending on the west side. The photo might be looking north east. https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC5 ... 996942d52f

Was there a depot here? I see what looks almost like a curb past the diamond.
