My C&O track profile shows several sidings just north of the Black River (bascule) bridge, then a siding at Harker Street, just south of the Blue Water Bridge, a siding at Elmwood and a siding at Hancock, all in Port Huron. Also looks like a pair of sidings between Holland Ave and the canal between the Black River and the lake, that runs along the south side of where the Ford dealer is today.
At one time there was a siding at Gardendale, which is in present day Fort Gratiot. I see a siding at Balkwell, which I'm not familiar with, although it's somewhere north of Gardendale. There was a siding at Blaine, and the double ended siding at Jeddo. North of Jeddo, the next siding appears to be the sugar plant in Croswell.
The date on the profile is August 12, 1953, and I doubt anything was added after that date (there are a lot of handwritten notes regarding track out of service though, as well as a notation that the profile was "checked" 12-31-66).
