Yes, the pipeline viewing area is there. I was pretty sure they were together. It's been 10 years next month our daughter took us to Alaska for our 35th wedding anniversary. So this year is 45 :D

First guess was Albion.
Better answer is Fort Custer.

That is it. The old spur into Ft Custer which looks like it is used for storage now.

Yessireeee! Indeed, its the old spur into Fort Custer off the connection on the south side of the NS/Amtrak Line main line in Battle Creek, Calhoun County. The road in the foreground is River Road W. The NS/Amtrak Line can be seen on the left as that shot above looking east towards downtown Battle Creek. Amtrak train nos. 351/352 between Pontiac and Chicago and train nos. 364/365 between Port Huron and Chicago. are the only operating trains passing by Fort Custer. Amtrak train nos. 350/353 and 354/355 are suspended due to the virus.

That's the Polly Ann Trail, looking south from W. 4th Street in Imlay City, Lapeer County. The CN RR/Amtrak Line and the old Vlasic Pickles Plant spur can be seen in the distance over the Polly Ann Trail. Final run of the remaining old GTW RR mixed trains 549/552 between Pontiac and Caseville with stop in Imlay City, was made on December 31, 1955. The old building on the left is or was the old Gibbard Elevator and Collectables.

Yes, indeed, Kimberly Fence and Supply Company, at the southeast corner of E 9 Mile Road and the Conrail Shared Assets tracks, about a mile east of Mounds Road in Warren, Macomb County. The shot above is looking south.
