I'm guessing what used to be the Michigan Line, now Amtrak I guess, between August and Galesburg, with M-96 that it looks like we're standing on.

Yep, that's just east of Galesburg, MI at MP 134 on the NS/Amtrak Michigan Line with M-96 at the right in Charleston Township, Kalamazoo County. That's either Amtrak train# 350 or 352 from Chicago to Pontiac. For my rest of the story, please see that page that Buster Manning mentioned above.

I might have had an unfair advantage, operated over that line hundreds (at least) of times when I worked for PC, CR, and NS. I remember when it was still double track.

It's the spur line to the Kaiser Aluminum Common Alloy on Kaiser Drive, north off of the CN Kilgore Yard, east of S. Sprinkle Road, Comstock Township, Kalamazoo County. Park Circle drive run to that plant. About 6 miles southeast of Kalamazoo.

Olds Ave in Lansing is indeed correct. Thought the cars in the distance, triple smokestack to the left would help. And lolz about the SE, SW, NE, or NW Michigan guess :) Technically, I think of Lansing as none of those 4 quadrants :)

Here's another where be it. I'd have to answer a no if RailRod guesses with the same guess again, but it is indeed in Michigan :)
