No clue needed - Three Rivers MI at 66 Railroad Dr. Bridge looked really familiar... LSRC, Trnwatcher, and I got photos from the parking lot that the fair is at, watching that test southbound grain train run a few years back.

Sort of a different one...but it contains rails nonetheless (and standard rails are very nearby)

Admin edit from the OP: I will add here, the photo is NOT in Michigan, but in a bordering state. :D

I don't know but I bet someone else will.

Would you post a picture of your layout in the Modeling threads? Your Avatar looks interesting.

That looks similar to a spot in Newberry but I don't think that is it.

Alas it was a (very large and heavy) module, which has since gone to a friend. But I have big (smaller and easier to move) plans for more AA-related modules in the near future! I'll share some pictures I have from that one too.

Sure, poster hasn't been on in a few days, didn't answer the question michael had or any more hints besides Ohio. Onwards we go to the next, preferably michigan to get us back on track, pun intended.

I'm guessing Pie39's photo of the handcar shed floor is likely near a tourist train but too many in Ohio to go looking.
