Timetable: NYC - Fayette Branch - Slocum Junction to Fayette

This line was the original route to Chicago by the Chicago & Canada Southern. It was built from the Detroit River dock to Fayette, but graded farther. The line came under Lake Shore & Michigan Southern control and was closed east of Grosvenor and the remainder was known as the Fayette Branch. Much of the route was later used by the DT&I to reach from Dundee to Trenton. Under LSMS/NYC ownership, they ran a "turn" between Adrian (via the Old Road) and Fayette. Station hours and passing siding capacity as of 1916. Car capacity based on 44' cars.

Notes:

The right of way between Stoney Island and Slocum Junction continued to be used by the Michigan Central for ferry operation to Canada until the tunnel was opened in 1908. It continued to be used for freight operations until the 1930's.

The right of way between Slocum Junction to Dundee was sold to the Detroit & Lima Northern, then to the DT&I. The DT&I later built a cut off at Durban to Malinta, OH. The route was abandoned west of Durban.

Bimo was reported to have an automatic interlocking but was downgraded to stop signs and stop and proceed.
