Station: Petersburg Junction, MI

Petersburg Junction is a former crossing of the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton main line (Detroit to Ironton, OH) and the Toledo-Detroit railroad (?) which was built from Toledo (near Temperance) northwest to Petersburg and beyond to Dundee. This line was purchased by the DT&I and truncated north of Petersburg. The line from this crossing north into Petersburg became a short branch line, and the DT&I used the branch south to Toledo for a connection with the Toledo Terminal Railroad. The crossing was disconinued at this time but the location continued to be a junction point for many years.

Both former Toledo-Detroit tracks are now gone. The location is now a passing siding on the Indiana & Ohio railroad which bought the former DT&I from the CN/GTW.

Location: 41o53.127'N / 83o42.134'W.
