Photo info/credit: Top, the North Lansing depot about 1900. Note the two different train order signals. The Left is labeled Michigan Central and the right is labeled Pere Marquette. Though this is a union depot, both railroads may have had separate operator/agents as it appears the train order signals are controlled by two different extensions from the depot. 2nd, a modern day (2003) photo of the former Lake Shore depot at North Lansing. This location is near the northern-most terminus of the Lake Shore's Lansing Branch which went between the buildings and terminated at the PM north of here. Note the concrete survey marker at the corner of the building. [Dale Berry]. 3rd photo, the Michigan Central/Pere Marquette depot at North Lansing.
