I'm a former small business owner in Flint, Mi., (grew up there), that now lives in Edwardsburg, Mi., a few miles north of Elkhart, In. Now retired. Married, still, to the same girl since 1974.
It's my uncles fault I enjoy railroads. He was a diesel electrician with the GTW in Pontiac, Mi. until moving to Sou. Cal. and the ATSF for a couple years, then with the SP until he retired. He would take us to the Pontiac, Mi yards and get us rides in the locos, (late 50's/early 60's). Then, when we visited Ca., we got several tours of the West Colton yards, engine service area and hump tower to watch the action on the double track hump. See, It's not my fault, I was brainwashed!
