Al,

There was a couple: Union Belt of Detroit (PRR, C&O/PM and WABASH) and Detroit Terminal Railroad, both of which are gone now.

Al,

NYC, Michigan Central had a yard, Livernois, I think, northeast of the Rouge plant, not connected directly with the Rouge plant. PRR didn't have a huge presence in Detroit they came in on the Wabash, I believe. NYC was the big road in the Detroit area.

1) GM had close by plant at Norwalk early on also.

2) I thought the Pennsy also had a yard on the north side of the Rouge plant.

Folks,
Ford also had a plant in San Pedro CA, on the LA-LB port area. Did Ford
have any other plants along the West Coast?
Thanks,

Larry,

Ford opened the Seattle assembly plant in 1913 and operated that
facility until the introduction of the Model A in 1928 when they
opened a new facility. The latter only operated a short while due to
the depression, but there are conflicting "facts" as to when it closed.

Thanks for you input regarding the traffic out of the Detroit area.
