Time Line

1923. The Ann Arbor railroad will begin work soon on new shops on a 17-acre site east of Owosso donated by the Chamber of Commerce some years ago. Newman Erb, of New York, president of the road announced last week. Erb said the company will build a new roundhouse and machine shop. The present buildings are inadequate, but the company has been unable to finance the construction of new buildings until now. They will cost several hundred thousand dollars. [LDP-1923-0502]
