Northeast end of the old NYC Ypsi branch with Morgan Road at the right in Pittsfield Township, south of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County. Ypsi branch ran between Ypsilanti and Hillsdale until 1961 when the branch abandoned between North Adam and Saline. That branch is now part of the Ann Arbor RR and now store freight cars. Passenger train service discontinued many years ago. It was the same trackage that crossed US-23 and I-94 expressways until 1970 when the section between Pitts Junction and Ypsi was abandoned.

[quote="Michael"]Osmer it is![/quo\\

yes, indeed, it's Osmer on the GLC RR, (former AA RR) between Joy and Warren roads in Ann Arbor Township, Washtenaw County. North of Ann Arbor. Final run of the remaining old Ann Arbor RR passenger trains between Toledo, OH and Boat Landing/Elberta/Frankfort, was made on July 19, 1950 which is 70 years ago this coming July 19.
