With a mainline that originated in the industrial port city of Toledo, Ohio, the Ann Arbor Railroad stretched northwest in a diagonal line across the length of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan to reach Frankfort and adjacent Elberta, where its
tracks terminated on the shore of Lake Michigan. From its Elberta facility, the Ann Arbor blended trains and Great Lakes carferries to operate a unique transportation system that survived for nearly a century. This book documents the Ann Arbor Railroad s legacy through rare photographs and historical research, and carries the reader on a visual journey through this influential railroad s storied past."
