1660 Hilger @ Kercheval.
AT&T Lenox Central Office

Google maps has the address location wrong.

That shot above is looking east with the Chrysler Jefferson North Assembly plant on the left not visible. The trackage in the foreground was the former DT RR. The building on the right is the AT&T office building building I think.

King road just west of W. Jefferson. Line been dead for as long as I can remember.

Funny thing is about a decade ago they removed the signals but refuse to remove the rails from the road. It's brutal to drive over.

Located it on the googles map, King Road, west of W. Jefferson Avenue, looking north in Trenton, the spur was off the connection with the ex DT&I main line south of CP Rodney(old Trenton Tower).

Is that Muskegon, with US 31 passing under the bridge?

Where be it? Sorry AARR, it's not a former spur into an industrial area, but at least it's not interurban this time. Well, i guess part of it turned into a spur further ahead in the photo, but still :)
That's Muskegon looking east along the old Pennsylvania RR ROW towards Grand Rapids. With US-31 passing under the bridge. Final run of the remaining old Pennsylvania RR passenger train consisted of a doodlebug between Grand Rapids and Muskegon with crossing on the bridge over US-31 in Muskegon, Muskegon County, was made on July 30, 1950.
Based on the shadows, isn't this looking west?

Correct. I was on the east side of US31 just north of Sherman Blvd looking west towards Muskegon.

This is an extremely infamous location, though not because of the railroad. Not in Michigan

I was just there a few days ago.

Looking southwest along Elm Street in Dallas, TX About to go underneath the UP and BNSF railroads. That spot was where President John F Kennedy was assassinated on Nevember 22, 1963.

Hope you know the NPA. This was easy due to what's in the picture.

I wanted to leave some clues in the photo but I knew Dave was going to be the one to recognize it.

Looks like it has seen a little bit of maintenance recently.
Emphasis on little.

W. Jefferson ave. in Riverview. Spur leading into Materials Processing inc. they really haven't used rail much in the almost 30 years I've lived in the area, I've literally only seen something crossing there one time in my lifetime. They had a second crossing slightly north of there that was removed not too long ago. Signals still in place but the lights have been covered and the cross bucks removed despite the rails being ripped from the road.

In addition the spur line to the Materials Processing was off the connection with the ex DT&I main line, it crosses West Jefferson Avenue about a mile north of Sibley Road in Riverview.
