Flint to Otter Lake

The Otter Lake Branch

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This line was built in 1857 under the Flint and Pere Marquette Railroad, and at first extended between Flint and Otter Lake. Eventually the line was completed to Fostoria. Abandonment came in two stages: the first between Otisville and Fostoria in 1955, and the rest of the line by 1987.

Today, the Huckleberry Railroad operates a 3-foot gauge tourist train over part of the route, north of Flint.
