Diners and More, Part 5: Michigan Electric

More interesting photos sent to us by Art Peterson.

For our next installment, we'll concentrate on the Michigan Electric.  I have some old friends who occasionally express a mild interest in this line, so here goes.  With one exception, all of these pictures were taken by George Krambles on Oct. 18 and 19, 1959.

It seems that nearly all of the cars identical to our #28 were originally preserved as bodies somewhere in Michigan.   This is #26, near Albion.  

And then a couple more of #31, the Silver Diner in Parma:

And ten years later, a photo by W. McCaleb:

Next, an unidentified box trailer near Leslie:

A Kalamazoo city car used as a diner in Martin:

And a Lansing city car, used as a shed on a farm near Leslie.
