Interlocking:  Alba Tower, MI

Alba Interlocking Tower and DepotAlba Interlocking Tower and DepotAlba Interlocking Tower and DepotThe interlocking tower in Alba was established around 1901, when the Detroit & Charlevoix Railroad entered town and crossed the north-south Grand Rapids & Indiana. This tower was likely removed after 1932, when the D&C was approved for abandonment by the Interstate Commerce Commission on August 26th.

According to reports, the foundation for the tower and depot still existed as of 2002, as well as the support blocks for the interlocking rods.
