More Great Lakes Central, Part One
Today we see a local job moving some lumber between Traverse City, Michigan, and the customer, Amerhart, over near Williamsburg. This order, of four cars, is the largest I’ve seen thus far (in the last few years).
The first two images shows the small train trundling past the grounds of the Cherry Capital Airport. The third image was taken just a bit east of there while the fourth has the train between Five Mile Road and Routes 72/31—with East Bay in the background. The final image has the train at Bunker Hill Road, in Acme, six miles east of the station in Traverse City.
All of these views were made along what was once the Pere Marquette Railway, the C&O after that. I’ll have five more pictures of this run tomorrow. Five photographs by Richard Koenig; taken July 7th 2017.
