i love this train, really helped me out when greyhound accidentally left me stranded in chicago one day.

its a beautiful route, amazing scenery. at least to me, lol.

Route Details[edit]

The above named section doesn't seem to track for me. Isn't the Kalamazoo-Detroit section of the Amtrak Chicago-Detroit line the former NS Michigan line? I believe freight rights on the Kalamazoo-Detroit portion were assigned to a shortline based in Kalamazoo (whose name I am forgetting) that operates the former NS Elkhart-Grand Rapids line. I am sure NS divested themselves of the former Michigan Central Mainline. Can any regular contributor clarify this? Gtwfan52 (talk) 05:20, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

  • NS is in the process of conveying Kalamazoo-Dearborn to the state of Michigan but I don't believe that's final yet. To the best of my knowledge the Grand Elk Railroad doesn't have freight rights over that route. Mackensen (talk) 14:37, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Ok, Thanks. The point is that either the bit about the Amtrak Chicago-Detroit line or the bit about the NS Kalamazoo-Detroit line is incorrect. I unfortunately do not have access to reference material to correctly update it. The Battle Creek trackage rights go wayyyy back, I am thinking prior to the formation of Conrail. I know they were in place when I moved to Kalamazoo in 1976. The old MC line through Downtown Battle Creek is gone. Since those long term trackage rights are effectively now the route of the NS (former NS?) line through BC, I don't think it adds any clarity to the article to include the bit about the trackage rights either. Just this Gtwfan's opinion. Gtwfan52 (talk) 22:16, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Station stops[edit]

I don't think the article gains by having the list of station stops with detailed connecting service information. For one, it takes us perilously close toward making this a travel guide (cf WP:NOTTRAVEL). For another, we have to keep the information in sync with the individual station articles, which often isn't done. If there's a place for this information in Wikipedia (maybe), it's in the individual station articles. Doing it this way encourages massive redundancy, especially when you consider Blue Water, which inevitably contains much of the same information (I looked, it varies in details).
