This stretch of track, originally built by the Connell Northern in 1914, had last been used for hauling trains of sugar beets from the interchange at Adrian to the sugar factory at Wheeler. By this time, those trains had stopped and this stretch would be pulled up in 1983.
This is the Stratford Road crossing near Road 12 NE today. Looking this direction today you would see a the Grant County Fire District 5, Station 6 fire station.
