The Allegan and Southastern Railroad purchased a short portion of the Mansfield, Coldwater & Lake Michigan, which was affiliated with the Pennsylvania Railroad but never operated. The A&SE operated this line for two years before it was leased to the GR&I, another PRR affiliate. That lease was cancelled in 1882 and the line was sold to the Toledo & Milwaukee which later became part of the Detroit, Toledo & Milwaukee and a number of other owners.
