Sallings was a junction point where MC forest lines were served in eastern Otsego County with the Bagley Branch diverging from the main line here. It was also the dividing point between state-owned rail and the Detroit & Mackinac trackage when the D&M operated this line after it was sold to the state by Penn Central. The railroad had a 1,904' passing siding here in 1911.
