Re: North Horn in Muskegon
Abandoned early - mid 1970s. Track ended at Erickson's big warehouse on the south side of Lake St. when the tracks came out - there was a switch and two tracks in front of (north side of) the building. The guys at NMFD worried about movements on this line, as oil of some form (from the refinery up the hill) had seeped into the basements of many of the houses on Celery Lane. Knowing what I know now, not sure if they were paranoid or if there was more to it than I knew. I saw a GP7 / 9 on the line a couple of times, never with any cars.
