I don't have any timetables with me, but after the single tracking began the double track to Kalamazoo began at CP Oshtemo. Not sure if that was a timetable location prior to that. I'm sure Oshtemo was a timetable location on the old ROW between Kalamazoo and Mattawan (later operated by the KLS&C). So it may have disappeared from the timetable after the realignment, and Miller would've been added.
There was a coal tower at Miller farther back, I would guess it was retired after the tower was built at Augusta. Miller Hill was noteworthy operations wise as a stiff grade for heavy westbounds leaving Kalamazoo.
