Re: C & O near Allegan
I would imagine this line used whatever power that was used in Grand Rapids and holland. I also read they make the trip down do Hamilton at a very slow pace these days. 5mph. At sum point in time that trestle in Hamilton woukd have had to been rebuilt after the 1908 major derailment on the trestle. Allegan is a very interesting area for where all the railroads joined together at the junction. On Google Aerial views when u get on street view u can still see traces of where the railroad grades came thru Allegan. I always wanted to have my house right next to one of these old abandoned grades. I love exploring them.
