Plymouth was the crossing of the west-east Detroit, Lansing & Northern railroad (from Detroit to Ionia/Grand Rapids) and the north-south Flint & Pere Marquette (Toledo northwest to Ludington via Saginaw and Midland). These railroads were merged about 1900 and this became a major junction point for the Pere Marquette, which had a large roundhouse here.
