Pre-1982 C&O Photos

Unread post by railroadboy2020 »

I really know that C&O Line from Manistee - Traverse City - Petoskey has been stopped using in February 20th 1982. It was unknown when those tracks been pulled up between mid or late 1982 or early 1983.

Today, Old C&O Line Portions was operated by Great Lake Central. While Portion in Grawn is overgrown by trees weeds and bushes. and Portion in Williamsburg is without overgrowing trees

I wish there's a bunch of photos of C&O Manistee - Traverse City - Petoskey Photos. :wink:

#UPDATE#
Here's the photo taken from summer of 1981. 40 Years ago.

Here is a video of a Chessie System train headed thru Alden, MI around the time frame. It looks to be shot from Lake Street in Alden. At 34 second in, it looks to be a 1981/82 Chevrolet Caprice. at 44 seconds, I can make out the squarebody, but it has the circle headlights which was last used in 79. I'm sure the depot museum would have some idea.

Wow, That was B&O GP9 blaring it's horn through the cars near the tracks. But sadly, There's no train in Alden. It just only rail trail.

I wish they had Chessie Train in Grawn photo though.
