MC Wenona Yard Engine FacilityMC Wenona YardWenona Yard was the Michigan Central's main freight yard in the Bay City area after 1900.  Before 1900, most freight classification was done at West Bay City but this area soon became congested and freight and locomotive facilities were duplicated here and Wenona Yard ultimately replaced West Bay City Yard as the main yard.
