The once busy junction of Elmdale now sees just a few trains per day. The old depot and dispatcher's office still stands here for now, the dispatchers all having been moved to Grand Rapids by the late 1970s. Behind the depot was the switch for the Elmdale sub, which Pere Marquette and C&O trains heading for Saginaw would take and swing north. Here we see G010-02 heading east past the depot with a loaded potash train in tow on an overcast day in early March.
