On the occasion of Transportation Week in Michigan in 1989, the Huron and Eastern Railway organized an open house in its headquarters city of Bad Axe, MI on Saturday, 20 May 1989. For this celebration, several events took place:

  • an open house of the H&E’s newly-constructed diesel shop
  • an excursion train ride using equipment from the Bluewater Michigan Chapter, NRHS
  • equipment displays
  • motor car rides in the H&E yard

Unfortunately it poured with rain all day, putting a damper on the activities. I was helping with the motor car rides, and few people ventured over to check us out. On the plus side, we were allowed the next morning to ride the branch line up to Kinde and back on our motor cars, so all was not lost!

These are some of the photos I made on the day of the event.
