The UM railroad was a short industrial branch line which brought loaded coal hoppers from the Michigan Central main line (east of the depot) to the UM ;power plant. It was originally powered by electric locomotives (using an overhead wire), and for a short time by diesel power. It was closed when the plant was converted to natural gas.
