Location: Port Huron, MI - GTW Facilities
The Grand Trunk Western had major facilities in Port Huron in the early days, including a roundhouse, car shops, offices, and yards. In the early days, the railroad also had shops at Fort Gratiot which was north of early Port Huron but these burned down in the early 1920's and operations were moved here.
