Thoughtfully created by Greg McComas, the Michigan Interstate Railroad is a Class II regional system operating 1,050 miles in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Making up the network is three divisions; Two Lower Peninsula (Grand Rapids / Bay City) and one Upper Peninsula (Northern). Primary overhead traffic service lanes look like a "Y" funneling traffic between Chicago / Fort Wayne / Toledo interchange to Port Huron (Lower Peninsula) and Sault Ste. Marie / Superior, WI (Upper Peninsula) gateways.
Beyond overhead traffic the railroad hosts numerous on-line customers supporting the automotive, agricultural, aggregate, chemical, forest / paper product industries.
