I think they stopped service earlier, but Ionia got ripped up in 2009, and while getting ripped, they were prepping for Greenville to get ripped. Old thread:

West side of Clare. The west end of the old C&O trackage.

Yes, indeed, west end of old C&O Railway trackage. west side of Clare in Clare County. The crossing in foreground is the west entrance to the Poly Plastic transloads. the far crossing is Maple Ave, The building on the right is Mc Donald Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership. Final run of the mixed train on the former C&) between Ludington and Saginaw, was made on November 30, 1949.

Yes, indeed, its southwest of Fremont, looking south along Fitzgerald Avenue, just south of W 60th Street, crossing the Michigan Shore RR trackage in Sherman Charter Township, Newaygo County. Passenger train service on the former C&O Railway line between Muskegon and White Cloud, ended many years ago.
