Mayor John Hieftje et al are giving speeches right outside the two refurbished rail coaches that are now open for inspection.
Train engine and one double-decker passenger rail car are positioned near the parking lot at First & William for public tours, as part of Friday’s Green Fair. According to a city press release, the train cars are former Metra bi-level gallery cars that were refurbished by the Great Lakes Central Railroad. This type of passenger car could serve on a commuter line between Ann Arbor and Detroit or between Ann Arbor and Howell, according to the city. [photo] [photo]

Burnt out apartments at 1310 Packard still smell of fire.
These arrows in the South Maple Kroger parking lot indicate we should drive on the left. All other arrows in same parking lot, including those at the other end of this lane, are correct. Perhaps this pair is the work of a disgruntled road painter who wants to return to British rule? [photo]
