You got it Michael. Located in Wyoming MI, crossing of the NYC and interurban line from Grand Rapids to Holland. I had biked the interurban line many many times over the last few years, but always at night, so never noticed the crossing dirt path of the NYC line. Biked that NYC portion earlier this month after seeing a google street view on Porter St SW saying "no motor vehicles", seen here:

Not Romulus.

Not on CSX, CN, or NS. But if an active customer, an NS engine would likely be used. ;)

Negative, that is the 586.

Somewhere to the south, on Conrail, in the 313.

Yes, indeed, Border City USA at the southeast corner of St Albin and Denton streets in Hamtramck, Wayne County. The old spur was off the connection with Conrail SA main line over Joseph Campau Avenue in Hamtramck.

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 :)
