Coleman, MI on the former C&O Railway trackage from the 3rd Street Crossing looking west along the now Pere Marquette Trail and old US-10 towards Clare. In Coleman, Midland County. Final run of the remaining passenger train which was a mixed train ran between Saginaw and ludington, was on November 30, 1949 liitle over six months after I was born. Either still now or was a depot restaurant. My late mom and I ate there once in August, 2006.

Good work RailRod. Here's another.. it's on a Michigan highway, so M-xx road. This Michigan highway ends into another Michigan highway about 1/3 mile to the east of this spot. The railroad that crossed here has been long gone.

Got it! M-44 near Orleans east of Hoppouch Road which is between M-66 and Belding. The old Pere Marquette RR ROW was between Ionia and south of Greenville. This shot is looking westbound along M-44 towards US-131.

That trackage was abandoned in 1933. This shot is looking westbound along M-44 towards US-131. In Orleans Township, Ionia County.

Good work railrod. Wasn't sure when it was abandoned, but cool to know it was 1933.

ConrailDetroit - I'm guessing "Detroit" to start.

It is within 30 miles of GR.
This 1000 foot section appears to be one of the few parts of the original railroad right of way that is not part of a rail trail

Ahahha nice, found it. Didn't recognize the spot at first as I've only biked this trail at night time. Your photo is looking northwest on M-37 on the south side of Caledonia. I did bike this grass section one evening while coming back from Barry Co where this trail currently ends.
