Station: Lennon, MI

Penn Central on the GTW at Lennon, MI

Lennon was settled in 1880 in Shiawassee County and a grain elevator was established here on the Grand Trunk Western railroad. [MPN] The town is located about six miles northeast of Durand, on the GTW's branch to Bay City.

Many unusual moves were made during this period as normal Penn Central routes were badly deteriorated and couldn't handle the weight of coal trains headed to Essexville near Bay City. [Charlie Whipp]
