The western end of this abandonment is found in Baldwin. This scene can be found west of the active diamond and still shows some rail activity in the area. Photo by Richard Roberts, July 2012.

The year was 1954 and as a 12 year old kid I was travelling Northward by rail on what was previously the Pere Marquette from Baldwin..at this very point.. as I headed for Camp Hayo-Went-Ha, located on the East side of Torch lake in Northern Michigan. The significance here, in my case, is that the following year the "high Bridge" over the Manistee River was dismantled....which effectively eliminated all rail travel from Baldwin Northward forever.
