You mean Fennville? That is CSX territory.
Or do you mean Ferndale?

I think the CN intermodal facility is very busy. I'm not sure which trains are switching it now.

A local from Pontiac switches the chemical plant in Ferndale along with other customers north and south.

At least one through freight each way, possibly more.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...

Maybe this is too late, but here's what I know. Q116 (Chicago to Flat Rock, drops off intermodal in Ferndale, carries some mixed to Flat Rock), M371 (Flat Rock to ???, autoracks and mixed), M391 (Toledo to Gary, IN, mixed), L502 (Battle Creek to Toledo, mixed and autoracks), L514 (Flint to Ferndale and back, intermodal), L515 (Pontiac to Eastpointe and back, mixed), and Amtrak trains (P350, P351, P352, P353, P354, P355 - all running between Chicago and Pontiac via Kalamazoo, Jackson, Ann Arbor, Detroit). There are sometimes extras, including occasional sand trains, extra autorack trains for Flat Rock, and occasional extra intermodal trains into and out of the intermodal terminal (Moterm). There might be a local turn or two I'm forgetting.
