alger_mi_station.gif The Michigan Central Railroad station and water tower at Alger. In the late 1800's, this station served as a junction point for the Detroit, Bay City & Alpena Railroad (which later became the Detroit & Mackinac Railway). This may be why the station rated a trackside standpipe locomotive water pipe, rather than just pulling up to the tower. Such standpipes were unusual for a town as small as Alger.
