New roadbed and track installed. MCIS 3823 (EMD GP38-2) idles on the new west leg that curves north towards Port Belle.
Not only does the wye provide access to the Port Belle Sub, but it also provides a way to turn power or railcars if necessary. This feature will be put to good use by the weekly coal train that visits the Thumb Electric Cooperative Co-gen plant at Upper Huron. (Train seen crossing Saginaw River in photo above).
