It makes sense in a way, Ford Motor Company used to own it's own railroad that used a General Electric 132 ton center cab that had styling based off of a 1937 Ford....makes me wonder if Ford is going to have employee commuter line to the station.
Was this the Detroit & Toledo Shore Line RR? Or am I thinking of something else...?
I thought it was the Detroit, Toledo, & Ironton.
I believe you are correct.
They owned the DT&I as well as their own industrial road. There is a guy selling Ford hopper decals, and part of me wants to make a MTL Ford 33 foot hopper....
I also have always liked the look of that Ford GE Center Cab...
Or you could buy one: http://www.trovestar.com/generic/zoom.php?id=22752
It is criminal what was allowed to happen to that magnificent building.
I wonder just where this Nation stands, with regard to allowing so much history to be damaged or destroyed?
