The former LS&MS line, later NYCS, later Penn Central, actaully looking west along Clinton Street in Lansing's Old Town. Final run of the remaining old NYCS line passenger train between North Lansing and Hillsdale, which was mixed trains 64/65, was made in 1934. All in Lansing, Ingham County. Also , please note below the crossbucks sign is another sign stated "EXEMPT" That's mean the CATA busses and the Lansing Public Schools busses are allow to cross without stopping.

Yes, it's at the Hawk Meadow Park on the north side of Delta River Drive, just east of Ingersoll Road in Delta Township, Eaton County, just west of Lansing. South of BL I-96 (Grand River Road). CSX RR Plymouth Sub can be seen in the distance. The floating bridge over the unamed lake looking north toward the former C&O Railway trackage. A old late neighborhood friend of my late dad, and his family lived in house on Bradford Lane in the Willowbrook Estates about a mile directly south of the park in Delta Township, until he passed away July 8, 2006 ten years later that Bradford Lane house was sold.

Correct Dave. Was out running errarnds with a buddy of mine in Lansing, said he wanted to walk in a nearby park, saw the bridge, headed that direction and when I got there, I told him "I know this spot! I've seen this on google maps before when looking for spots to possibly get train photos from one day."

Well, now I need to do some exploring. Not that I'll ever be lucky enough to catch a train there though.

Please do JT. There's a few trees/brush there that need your attention. A late running q328 would be great to get in the morning about now.
It's funny, when I was there, I told TheVariance that JT needed to come and clear brush :)

Spur line to MPC Cashway Lumber and Builders Studio-Lansing, midway between Grand Ledge and Lansing off the CSXT Plymouth Sub. In Watertown Township, Clinton County. Final runs of the remaining passenger trains on the old C&O Railway main line. Passenger trains 11,12,14, and 15, the Pere Marquette, between Detroit and Grand Rapids, were made on April 30, 1971.

There are few clues in this one but I get the feeling someone will nail it.
