Timetable: MCRR - Bridge Division - Slocum Junction to Stony Island

Prior to construction of the Michigan Central railroad tunnel in Detroit, the MC used this over-the-river route to ferry cars between Amherstburg, Ontario and Michigan's mainland. Going west from Canada, short blocks of cars used a railroad car ferry from Amherstburg to Stony Island, then across a bridge to Grosse Isle (near the Grosse Isle station), across the island and then another bridge to Slocum Junction which was near present day Van Horn Road (Trenton).
