Over the last several days, there have been a number of trains that have blocked the crossing grades at Ann Arbor Trail, Lilley Road and Main Street for, quite literally, hours at a time. It’s out-of-control. It’s not just an inconvenience. These trains keep us from getting to businesses in the city.
Guess what. There’s not a damn thing the city can do about it. Railroads are governed by federal law and cities and states cannot fine them for blocking crossing grades. Plymouth tried this years ago and the local ordinance was struck down.
CSX shoulld be more cognizant of the needs of the people in the areas where its lines run. CSX should be a more thoughtful part of this community.

A large film crew has taken over Kellogg Park. I’m guessing from one of the set pieces that some kind of “Biggest Loser” thing is taking places. If you know what’s going on, feel free to enlighten me.

Wilcox House got a new roof. That, by itself, is hardly newsworthy. I get that that’s a pretty small story. But what is interesting is that it likely means something is going to happen with the house, hopefully sooner rather than later.

The bar was shut down in January, apparently for too many violations. The sign on the door says the place was supposed to re-open in February, which has obviously come and gone.
My guess is that the place is closed for good.

The link above has lots of great info
on our historic neighbors to the west, Salem Township. I’ve been in that area a lot lately and started exploring it a bit.
The town itself is “cute” and friendly enough. There are some keen historic places to see.
More pics from other sites around the area will be posted later.
