Baldwin Pere Marquette Depot
Posted by Ren Farley on 6/19/2015, 2:19 pm
The former Pere Marquette depot stands in Baldwin and is used by the Marquette Railroad. It is aligned with the former Pere Marquette north south line that ran from Grand Rapids to Bay View. However, Baldwin was also located on the Pere Marquette line that went from Saginaw to Ludington. For years, the Pere Marquette had one round trip passenger train daily from Saginaw to Ludington. But that Saginaw to Lundington line is about 200 yards north of the Pere Marquette depot. Did the east-west passenger train back into the depot or make a Y move at Baldwin?
Thank you. The Pere Marquette once had a stop at Idlewild just east of Baldwin. I have never seen a picture of their station at Idlewild. I wonder if they had one? Thanks
