Railroad Cancels: Ann Arbor Railroad and Detroit and Lima Northern Railway

The logo above is for the Detroit, Toledo and Ironton Railroad which was organized in 1905 through a combination of the Detroit and Lima Northern Railway and the Ohio Southern Railway. The same year the DTI took control of the Ann Arbor Railroad, though it only maintained that control for 3 years.

Cancel for the Detroit and Lima Northern Railway. The D&LN connected Detroit with Lima, Ohio.

Cancel for the Ann Arbor Railroad. The AARR maintained a line from Ann Arbor to Lake Michigan shoreline and ran ferry services across Lake Michigan. The Wabash Railroad controlled the Ann Arbor (through stock ownership) from 1925 to 1963. An earlier post contains a Wabash RR cancel.
