Cancel for May 24: Chicago, Kalamazoo, and Saginaw Railway

C.  K.  &   S.
MAY

RY CO.

Derisively referred to as the "Cuss, Kick and Swear," the CK&S operated mostly in Kalamazoo County Michigan and would never reach its namesake cities of Chicago or Saginaw.  The railway would eventually become a part of the Michigan Central and the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern, both controlled by the New York Central.
