    Big summer times fest around railroading in this little town every year.
    They also hold a couple car shows every year, spring dust off and the end of summer one in September.
    Now they are attempting to get a evening cruise going. Last night was the first one I was told. then later told no it is a mid week car show. What ever they want to call it it was a enjoyable time, not to hot and a nice breeze blowing.

    What they did fail to do is factor in all the evening cruise nights for Wednesday in the 100 miles surrounding area.
    Turn out was near 50 cars. A well established evening cruise night was less than 25 miles away, another about 50 miles out also.

    The town depot.

    Yes at one time many of the town folks made a living off thre rail road. There is still a road from Detroit going to Grand Rapids, From Flint going to Chicago One more that goes north.

    Railroads were the classic days of transportation. Just like the airlines killed off the transatlantic cruise industry so did our cars help to eliminate the rail lines. Lately there has been a push around here to get a Amtrak stop in our town. I dont see it happening and if it did I have no idea why anyone would want to get off the train here. We still have the passenger and freight terminals standing from the late 1800's but no tracks feeding them anymore.
