Take a look at the Huron and Eastern System Map. Notice it shows that interchange occurs with LSRC at Saginaw.
Neither system map shows a direct interchange being possible between the MMRR and HESR. This is confirmed by looking at the Lake States Railway System Map. That map shows the interchange points being at Paines[with MMRR] and Saginaw[with HESR].
LSRC could grant MMRR and/or HESR rights over the Shields-Paines track segment. They could sell that short track segment to them. But why would they? LSRC would be giving up revenue by doing so. After all, LSRC is in the business of making money.
Is it logical? Not really. But when money is involved, sometimes logic isn't.
