So I was up at my mom's this weekend. As we were out and about, I stumbled across this train engine.
The engine belongs to the Lake State Railway and I believe I've covered them before on this blog. But I might have had their name wrong (I called them Lake Shore). But I find railroad histories pretty interesting.
The Lake State Railway inherited most of what was the Detroit and Mackinac back in 1992. It also acquired a line that was owned by the Michigan Central.
The Detroit and Mackinac had a fairly long history of its own. It operated from 1894 to 1992. It was called the Turtle Line at one point.
It basically went from Bay City to Mackinac City.
I kind of wish I had stumbled across the striped train though.
Since it was just sitting there, I decided to take some angles that I don't normally get a chance to take.
