In the top photo, this was a 700 foot long, 35 foot high fixed span bringing the interurban railway over both the heavy traffic Michigan Central main line and the Lake Shore's Lansing branch looking west sometime after 1902. Tower "A" is at the right for the MC/LSMS crossing but likely had no responsibility for the interurban line.

In the second photo, this was the interurban depot at Albion, which was a station stop and maintenance facility for the railroad.
