Depot Street Trestle

This railroad trestle at one time connected the Staebler coal yard to the Michigan Central Railroad. It was used to unload coal from hopper cars into trucks waiting below. The trestle was obscured for many years by dense undergrowth. These photos taken May 1999.

In 2006 a local developer put up a new building on this site. Amazingly enough he not only kept the tracks, but put a hopper car up strictly for decoration. These photos taken November 2006.
