Article on Mlive about a former PM/C&O customer in downtown Flint, near Chevy in the Hole. C&O has been out of there since the early 90's...or really that far down since the mid 80's. Was once told a story that the x-ings were in place on GT and 1st St. for a long time after tracks were gone...City of Flint waited to pull them.
Elba Steve has told the story about the old C&O Main...and it's a good one! Steve, do you have any pictures of the crossings? I think you may have told me you did, but lost them to the sands of time.
My guess is that this actual elevator itself really hasn't shipped by rail since long well before the tracks were even gone...70's or 60's.
Blight City down there to those who are not familiar. Has been for years.
