    Small Pictures, Big Stories – Part 1

    Take a journey along the rails of Michigan with the stories behind rare and unusual Michigan railroad pictures, presented by Michigan railroad expert, Mark Worrall.

    From oat powered trains to air powered railroads; oil trains on the Annie to Hunter Specials roaring across the Upper Peninsula; Grand Rapids reefers to the DSS&A’s spending binge in 1888.

    A KPL partner program hosted by the Southwest Michigan Postcard Club.
