Remarks & Notes 
Crossing icy Mott Lake......or at least a little piece of it. The Huckleberry Railroad's D&RGW K-27 Locomotive #464 hauls her passenger train across the short wooden trestle on the outskirts of the town of Genesee, MI, en route to the line's eastern loop, perhaps a mile and a half ahead.

The little bridge pictured here crosses a small bay on the northern shore of C.S. Mott Lake, a 3.5 mile long, man-made lake created in 1972 to provide recreational opportunities in the region, just northeast of the City of Flint, MI. The narrow gauge, Huckleberry Railroad essentially runs along the north shore of the lake from the Crossroads Village on the west end, to the E. A. Cummings Center just east of the town of Genesee. The railroad has turning loops at either end, and operates a lot like a gigantic model train set. When the train leaves Crossroads Station, it never needs to stop at any place until it arrives back where it started....and unlike many tourist lines, the power is always facing forward.
