Michigan First or Famous

The State of Michigan was first or famous in a number of railroad areas. These are events, companies or other known facts from Michigan which are interesting. Our thanks to Dr. LeRoy Barnett for contributing this list:

Le Roy Barnett retired in 2001 as an archivist with the State of Michigan Archives. Throughout his career, Dr. Barnett made note of railroad trivia as well as interesting railroad facts which he has shared with RRHX. We hope that you enjoy reading them. Many of these "sayings", slogans, film names will bring back memories for you. If you have other factual bits of trivia to add, there is a hot-link on each page for you to use.
