Location: Niles, MI - MCRR Yard
Niles was a division point for the Michigan Central railroad. In the 1920's, the MC built major hump yards here. It also had an ice house, roundhouse and other facilities. The hump yard was decommissioned and the yard downsized after the NYC upgraded the Air Line (from Jackson to Three Rivers/Elkhart) and Elkhart yard.
