Grand Crossing
Title:  Grand Crossing
Description:  While there are many railroad bridges that cross the Grand River, there are none quite as picturesque as the swing bridge linking Ferrysburg with Grand Haven. Here Michigan Shore's southbound road train is seen with all three of the railroad's engines crossing the river. The conductor must close and reopen the bridge for river traffic after the train has cleared, as the bridge hasn't been staffed in decades. In the CSX era right up until the sale of the line in 2005, the conductor rode in a caboose on the end to expedite this process.

Title:  Uh, what are you doing?
Description:  A real winner thought he could sneak around behind the 816 on the rear of P370. Needless to say he found his path blocked by a snow pile and poles. Eventually he backed out of there as the train pulled out.

Z151 Northbound at Fuller
Title:  Z151 Northbound at Fuller
Description:  Heading north past the signals for Fuller diamond, the crossing with the Grand Rapids Eastern (ex GTW). To the right of 2008, just out of sight, is the bridge that carried the Pennsy (GR&I) over the creek. The PRR and PM paralelled each other north out of Grand Rapids until Comstock Park, where the Pennsy swung east across the PM and went towards Cadillac. Fuller Jct was once a busy place with PM (later C&O), PRR (later PC then CR) and GTW trains all passing through, and still sees around 4 trains a day.
