Charlotte Southern Rail Road is a short line railroad operating in Michigan.[1] It connects Charlotte, Michigan, with the CN rail system. It is a freight system, but its main customer has not received rail traffic since the early 2000s. It is operated by the Adrian and Blissfield Rail Road Company.

Dinner Train[edit]

The railroad hosts the Old Road Dinner train.[2]


The railroad uses a GE 44-ton switcher for the Old Road Dinner train and any freight operations. This locomotive was the last 44-ton locomotive ever built. The railroad uses three passenger cars for the dinner train, and has two more stored at the end of the line.
