June 21, 1878 The first passenger train on the Toledo & Ann Arbor arrives in Ann Arbor

The Owosso American Sept. 18, 1878

The East Saginaw Herald says:

Mr. George W. Clarke, the chief engineer of the Ann Arbor & Toledo Railroad, was in the city Wednesday. He thinks there is a strong probability of the extension of the road northward at no distant day, and that it may choose to the Owosso, and thence via Ithaca and Elm Hall to Manistee or Frankfort. We suggested the feasibility of making East Saginaw a point, and that access to this region was quite as desirable as any locality on the shore of Lake Michigan. Mr. Clarke was the engineer who run the first lines of the F. & P. M. road.

The New York Times Dec. 25, 1887

There were no trains over the Toledo and Ann Arbor Railroad today on account of heavy snow drifts between Ann Arbor and Dundee.
