Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bluewater Michigan Chapter of the National Railroad Historical Society, colloquially called Bluewater, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which owns a large fleet of historic railway passenger coaches and operates railway excursions and other events/trips involving historical railroads. Bluewater Michigan Chapter was originally intended to exist in the Port Huron, Michigan area and thus named "Bluewater." Shortly after, however, it leased the former SEMTA Rail commuter rail maintenance facility in Pontiac, Michigan, adjacent to the large Grand Trunk Western yards. Bluewater focused on railway excursions around and beyond the state of Michigan, usually hauled by the host railroad's locomotives. They also loaned their coach fleet out to other excursion operators. An example of a Bluewater excursion would be from Detroit to Fort Wayne, Indiana on July 28 and 29, 1984, where the Norfolk and Western 611 steam locomotive hauled 24 cars including Bluewater coaches.show more
