NS - Grand River Bridge
Posted December 12, 2015, by Tim (mcrr29 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge was originally built in 1905 when the Lansing Manufacturers Railroad was constructed from a connection with the Pere Marquette and Lake Shore & Michigan Southern at Turner St to the Oldsmobile Main Plant along the Grand Trunk in Lansing. LMR was owned 50/50 by the Michigan Central and LS&MS.
