Nice train picture, only thing missing is the train.

I'd say that the rest of the railyard that once stood here is missing as well. Thanks for visiting, JB. Hope you have enjoyed my gallery.

What was this yard for?

These are train stops. they act as chalks to stop cars from rolling off the end of the line.

I believe it was a "car-yard" for Ann Arbor Railroad. The line was largely used for lumber and ore hauling from 1895-1970's from northern Michigan/Wisconsin to Toledo, OH. It never carried passengers. Where the line terminated in Elberta, MI, a "train ferry" would ferry the cars across Lake Michigan to ports in U.P. Michigan and Wisconsin.
