In General

Granted, not much here, but if you're into cataloging any and everything of railroad significance, this is what you will find here.  I'm guessing, since the street adjacent to the railroad building is called Depot St, that  it is in fact a depot and not a freight shed, altho it may have served as both (especially since tracks were on both sides of the building).  Anyone know?

I would like to give a big thanks to Jim Mihalek and his brother for the pictures.  Every year, they go out and document signals from the Minneapolis area (where Jim lives) down into Michigan and Ohio.  They do a great job and should be commended for their efforts!

Maps are from Google Maps, the aerial shot is taken from www.bing.com/maps.  If I get the time, I will make my own map of the area.

The snap-shots off of Bing and Google are made with Snagit, a Techsmith  product... a great tool if you have never used it!  Give it a try!

As always, if you have something to contribute, add or correct, click here


Getting Here


Take exit 105 off of I-94, and head SW on route 95, where you will see the freight shed on your left.  Mileages to "known" cities are on one of the maps.
