Location: Detroit, MI - Central Avenue (MC-NYC)

MC Central Avenue Central Avenue was on the west side of the City of Detroit, 1.25 miles west of the West Detroit interlocking. In addition to the NYC's east-west main line here, this was a part of the Junction Yard. To the west was the "bowl" and departure yard, and to the east was Livernois Yard and the railroad shops along Livernois Avenue. The towers controlling the humps were here at Central Avenue.
