Re: Switching Hooker Chemical Plastics Warehouse
Mitchell is a generic West Michigan town on my layout. Very loosely resembles Montague Michigan (15 miles north of Muskegon), which is where the West Michigan Hooker Plant you reference was located at. It was next to the DuPont plant. On my layout, outbound pool chemicals and cleaning agents. Also chlorine outbound. Real life - I don't know. I did not know they shipped to Marysville. Very interesting. I was reading of shipments somewhere a few days ago that went from the Lake City area to Muskegon. Seems so surreal now that shipments back then would indeed travel "not that far" via rail.
