Greenville after the Art Train
Posted by aghudley on 3/26/2015, 8:39 am
These two photos show the Greenville GTW depot, interlocking tower and a warehouse(?) as they were painted for the visit of the Art Train in the mid 70s, and the TOFC ramp. I personally disliked this paint job which lasted until the buildings were razed several years later. The tower was moved to Coopersville and is part of the Coopersville and Marne exhibits.
GTW Turkey Trail main went between the tower and depot, C&O to Stanton, Edmore and Saginaw curved north to the right of the tower. C&O is now part of the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail.
Trail Nut, Doctor No and I walked the GTW grade from here west half a mile last year finding the remains of the TOFC ramp, tower foundation, the coaling tower and the trestle over the Flat River past the vacant lot that was once Gibson Refrigerator (Frigidaire).
Does anyone think I should submit the first one for inclusion on the RRHX Greenville page?
