Not in the 810. Which leaves the 517, 231, 616, and 989.

Hints

-Michigan Central.

-The Jackson, Lansing, and Saginaw RR laid the first track through here.

-North of the 734 area code.

Alro Steel in Grayling. Without your hints it would have taken me much longer to find. Before Alro it was a Georgia-Pacific plant of some kind. Hasn't used rail service since G-P moved out.

Alro Steel is located on the east side of Industrial Street which is visible at the bottom of the above shot. Just east of I-75 and south of M-72. The spur was off the connection with former Michigan Central RR , now LSRC. in Grayling.

This road crossing pic on google maps was taken fairly close to this photo I snapped in northern Illinois. Of interest is this body of water the bridge goes over.

On highway near St Charles, IL near the Fox River? Or by the bridge over the Rock River near Rockford, IL.

Draw a circle that has a 30 mile radius, with the center being St Charles, and this spot should be on the outer part of that circle.
