Re: Unstoppable on TV

Thanks for posting this, Z! I enjoyed seeing different angles of the filming locations, many of which are signature photo locations on the WNYP.

Re: Harsco Rail to close Ludington plant

It looks like it is the Big Sable River Bridge just north of Free Soil (south of Manistee). 44.119182, -86.220184 That is correct. There was also a BNSF plow sent out in 2015, which I believe was the last one. It ended up being shipped directly to Railway Interchange in Minneapolis where it was on ...

Re: Train Schedules...Looking for best times to find trains

I cannot speak to the Susie Q, but the Finger Lakes has several jobs running out of Geneva. I checked in at their offices back in 2015, and they were friendly and accommodating. Unsure if attitudes have soured over time. They no longer have any Alcos on the roster. Maybe you're thinking of the old G...

Lack of traffic was not the downfall of the D&M. The sale of the D&M to LSRC was done to bust the union.

Re: Michigan Street Running?

Alpena, MI had a stretch of true street running down Fletcher St in addition to the current stretch of "fake" street running down 10th Ave. The Fletcher Street branch has since been removed. Below is a photo taken by Ron Cady of a train running down Fletcher Street, crossing 2nd Ave. http://www.rail...

Re: Lowell Street Trackage???

AT one time the spur in question served the headstone/monument shop. I remember that being in place years ago. The piece left of the spur was used to unload plastic beads for Attwood. Wonder where that business went? Was in use when CSX had it up until maybe 10/15 years ago... Attwood changed corpo...

Re: Where Is It?

Nope! Clarifying one of the hints given, the trackage shown is not owned by any of the railroads guessed, but it may or may not connect to one of them... Is it near Tawas? It seems like there's an abandoned gypsum yard up there that might look like this. Winner! US Gypsum yard in Alabaster, MI. Thi...

Is it on MQT?
No sir! Two hints: think industrial, and I'm only a few hundred feet away from water where I took this.

Re: Where Is It?

Kentwood is incorrect. My first hint is that it was taken North of 1-96 and East of 131.

Kinda poor to put up a post out of state with no mention.

Correct! Gary, Indiana, J to CSX transfer track, looking west from N Clark Rd. It's surprisingly scenic in certain pockets of that area due to the wetland.
