Station: Dana, MI

Dana was a location on the Michigan Central railroad's Twin Lakes Branch from Grayling to Lewiston. This station was at milepost 24.25 (from Grayling) and just inside the Montmorency County line in the southwest corner of the county.

[MPN] suggests that Dana was located six miles southeast of Lovells in 1889 in Crawford County.

In MCRR employee timetable #405 dated September 27, 1925, Bucks and Dana were no longer Telephone stations. The branch line hosted two second class trains (actually one round trip), No. 94 leaving Grayling at 5:00 a.m. and arriving at Lewiston at 7:10 am. It turned and left Lewiston at 10:50 a.m. and arrived back at Grayling at 1:00 p.m. This train ran only on Tuesday's and Saturdays, and apparently was a mixed train handling both passenger and freight traffic.
