MAILBAG: Who operates swing bridge?

ANSWER:

CSX no longer runs that line, so we checked with the Michigan Department of Transportation. MDOT spokesman John Richard said the line is owned by Michigan Shore Railroad, a division of Rail America.

"The bridge is operated by the train crews," Richard added.

According to the company's website, Michigan Shore Railroad operates a line with more than 7,000 cars per year, primarily to ship sand and chemicals.
