Location: Alpena Junction, MI
Alpena Junction is the location of the Lake State Railway's yard in Alpena, located about 1/2 mile north of the Thunder Bay River on the main line. It is also the point where the branch to the cement plant leaves the main line in a northeast direction from the end of the yard. The Lake State 5-bay roundhouse is also located within the wye at Alpena Junction. There was originally a turntable at this location, which was later replaced with switches for each door. The Detroit & Mackinac's dispatching office was also located in an office off the roundhouse at Alpena Junction for many years.
