Timetable: MCRR - Saginaw Branch - Denmark Junction to Southbound Junction

The Detroit & Bay City railroad built north from Detroit to Bay City via Lapeer and Vasser. The railroad quickly realized that the community of Saginaw was a significant location for forest products and this short 18 mile branch line was constructed.  Northbound passenger trains soon diverted through Saginaw, and the line between Denmark Junction and Bay City East Side was downgraded to mostly freight operation. Siding capicity is from 1897 and is based on 44' car lengths.
