Here in SE Michigan there are a number of old right-of-ways that were
abandoned in the NYC era in the late 50's to early 60's. These are most of
the old LSMS lines. A few spots did make it into PC & CR.
Some of the right-of-ways that are adjacent to farm lands have long since
been plowed under, while others are still clearly visible. I am not exactly
sure who owns them, but I think it may be the state or county. There has
been a big debate recently over converting some of these in Washtenaw County
to Rails-to-Trails, connecting Ann Arbor, Tecumseh & Manchester. The folks
living along these lines are all pretty much against it.
