Ingham County is home to Michigans Capitol City~ Lansing. Lansing is served by 3 railroads: Canadian National, CSX Transporation, and Norfolk Southern, and Amtrak on the CN makes two appearances with the Blue Water.
Canadian National Definetly has the biggest show in town, with a mostly double track main that runs from Port Huron to Chicago. Any power from any road can be seen on the CN line.
CSX is the second busiest, and has about 6 scheduled daily trains, but that number can easily jump up or down, as the line has a ton of Western coal trains with BNSF power, and Coke and Grain show up when ever they are needed, as well as the occasional rock train.
Norfolk Southern comes into Lansing from Jackson to the south, and goes to Saginaw Yard. They also have a connecting line from their yard up to the CSX at Ensel Yard in the northwest corner of the county.
