PH&D Railroad Historical Society 2100 32nd Street Port Huron, MI 48060
Predecessor to the Port Huron and Detroit Railroad was the Port Huron & Southern. Taken probably in the early 1910s, here we see a PH&S 0-6-0 pulling its train north along Busha Highway.
The discovery of salt in the rock strata below the region made it very valuable to mine and that is why the railroad was built.
Steam locomotives survived on the line until the early 1940s when the first Alco switcher was purchased.
PH&D 62 shoves its train to the west on the west leg of the wye sometime in the 1970s.
No. 60is parked outside the roundhouse on the south side looking south west along 32nd Street.
Here is No. 60 again probably late 1940s or early 1950s. Note the paint change.
