Grand Rapids & Indiana RR Train Shed


The view of the train shed is looking north with Ionia St. running between the shed and the building at the left, which housed the GR & I general offices, that was located at Ionia and Island (now Weston). At the left a passenger train enters the shed and another can be seen under its roof. In the lower right is a freight train and box cars. The GR & I Railroad used the Union Station at Ionia and Oakes for passenger service.
