Remarks & Notes 
On October 26th, 2019, the Village of Holly held a festival to gather up some support and donations for the relocation of their depot so that the village can utilize the building and begin restoration of the historic structure. This offered a rare opportunity to actually open the building to the public, which was the first time this many people had been inside since the termination of passenger service many decades ago. In conjunction with that, Lake State Railway ran a series of employee appreciation specials on their newly acquired portion of the former CSX Saginaw Subdivision from Flint to Holly. While in town the people on board the train could debark for a moment while the train stocked up on food from the Historic Holly Hotel. LSRC 4325, the locomotive painted to recognize the 25th Anniversary of the creation of Lake State is being setup to lead the train back north. Passenger Trains are a rare sight in Holly these days, and it was a very nostalgic view to witness a train loaded with people slowly come around the curve for the people inside the station. A train, the iconic watertower in downtown and the depot all in one photograph, it doesn't get any more Holly then that.
