The PH&D bridge over Belle River can be seen from Recor Road in East China, MI. This short spur line was abandoned in 1987; the rails were removed a year later.

Marine City was also served by the former Detroit United Railway "Shore Line Division" which connected with this line and served the kris-kraft boat facility into the 1960's. The interurbann itself, of course was abandoned c1929.
Yes the DUR operated through Marine City, But the DUR did not provide the rail transportation for the Chris Craft Boat Company. The Algonac Transit Authority and the Port Huron & Detroit Railroad provided the transportation, and they only provided it until 1957, as the rails were torn up between the south side of Marine City and the Chris Craft plant on the south side of Algonac that year.
