Join us for a trip back to the mid-1970s as Emery Gulash and his 16mm movie camera covers the north end of the Ann Arbor Railroad! Filmed primarily north of Clare, locations seen south of Clare include Mt. Pleasant, Bannister, Durand, and Dundee. From Clare north, we will visit Lake George, Temple, Boon, Yuma, Mesick, Thompsonville, Beulah, and Boat Landing at Elberta. Then we will board the Viking for a trip across Lake Michigan to see the Green Bay Western at Kewaunee, Wisconsin. At Kewaunee and Boat Landing, Alcos are in charge of yard work and boat loading. After the Viking is switched in Kewaunee, the C&O boat City of Midland 41 arrives!
We will see the first signs of the Michigan Interstate Railroad, the Annies successor following the Conrail merger. And, as a special follow-up feature, the Viking 1 is shown on its last major sailing…being towed from Erie, PA to Menominee, Michigan in January 2003.
