    You were looking at it wrong. I have placed Detroit indeed to the north.

    Default CN/Conrail/NS/CSX Metro Detroit to Toledo

    I've been wanting to do this for a while now, but it is now truly happening.


    Tiles have been generated, not only for an extension of this route north to Utica along the Sterling Secondary and Utica Industrial, but I am also now adding CSX's route between Detroit and Toledo, for now just via the Lincoln Secondary and Toledo Terminal Subdivision so as to allow one to run Q131/Q132 between Detroit and Toledo.

    I am also planning on adding in some of the CN Dearborn Sub, extending the CN Flat Rock Sub to Carleton and adding in at least part of NS' Oakwood Yard.

    No ETA on when track laying will begin at this moment.

    Flat Rock Yard has been completely rebuilt, and the CN Flat Rock Subdivision has been extended to just past MP 25 near Carleton.

    Additionally, as seen below, I have started building the CN Dearborn Subdivision, and as of right now it extends to MP 7.7, which is the big north-to-northeast curve that lies between Goddard Road and Pelham Road in Taylor, more than 1 1/2 mile north of the Penford diamond, where the Conrail Lincoln Secondary crosses. It's a little over three miles north from where I've stopped for now to Oakwood Junction, which has a connection to the NS Detroit District for access to Oakwood Yard.


    To be done later are Henry Ford's concrete catenary arches, which still line a good portion of the Dearborn Sub 90 years after electrification was discontinued - yes, those arches were built that good.

    Scenery work has resumed along the Detroit Line/Shoreline Subdivision right-of-way, from the Conrail Bridge in River Rouge southward. Trees are done from the Bridge south to the Visger Road crossing on the south end of River Rouge Yard, and most buildings have already been put in between Visger Road and CP Mill.

    Visger Road cuts across this scene. The leftmost track is an unused, dead-end track that once served the now-demolished Dearoad Yard (which was closed by GTW), followed by the two tracks of the Shoreline Sub, Detroit Line track 1, then Detroit Line track 2, and finally, two siding tracks leading south out of River Rouge Yard, visible in the background.

    Water is now being added to the route. Here's the Ecorse River along the border of Ecorse and Wyandotte.
