I have lived in Jonesville, MI since 1999, and just saw my first railroad train passing through town. I have heard trains haphazardly over the years, but was never near the tracks when a train went rumbling by. Today, traffic was stopped while a freight train with about 6 cars crossed the highway. It was so unusual to me, that I called the Indiana Northeastern Railroad Company to find out about their schedule. I was told that there are a few trains that consistently go out every week servicing industry in Hillsdale, Jonesville, and Coldwater. They leave town at about 7 AM and return around 3 PM. I am usually making breakfast around 7 and greeting guests around 3–it’s no wonder I had not seen one in Jonesville before. Today my schedule was different, and the mystery was solved!
