Other Information:


  • A latecomer to the railroad world was the Detroit, Bay City & Western Railroad, which began building east from Bay City in 1910.  On October 27, 1916, it completed its last segment, from Peck to Port Huron via Tappan and the GTW.  Following financial collapse, the ends of the line were abandoned and the tracks from Roseburg north to Caro were sold to the Detroit, Caro & Sandusky Railway.  The line from Roseburg to Peck closed in 1937.   [from the Waybill, Nick Korstange, August, 1998]
