Time Line

1880. The line from Addison Junction south to CCC&StL Junction near Franklin, OH is opened. [MCR-1890]

1883. November 29. The line between Dundee, MI and Allegan MI was opened.

October 4, 1895. It is reported that nearly all the right of way for the extension of the Cincinnati, Jackson and Mackinaw to Jackson, Mich. has now been secured. The surveyors have located a line following a nearly direct route, and it is expected that as soon as the company completes the right of way purchases it will award the contracts for grading the new line, which will require the construction of about 20 miles of road [north from Addison Junction]. The road crosses a broken country, and the grading will be quite heavy. There is very little bridging and no long spans. [RG-10041895]
