Gloomy skies and light drizzle don't make for color photos in the spring. This photo takes on an industrial look with the black and white edit and dark fade at the top.
The CSX coal train was heading for the DTE St. Clair Powerplant in St. Clair, MI. The rail is former Port Huron and Detroit RR. CSX has trackage rights from Flint to Port Huron from which they travel upon their own tracks. I am told that the powerplant in the background is no longer in service with DTE (Detroit Edison). This is the Marysville Edison Plant and was built in the late 1920s.
