Yes, since the old PRR/GT line closed it is the only way to get to Muskegon.The CSX/C&O/PM branch must not be used too often because it is normally open.

I assume the PRR/GT line Pete refers to was the branch of the Grand Rapids and Indiana
A little different view of the swing bridge (still operational) over the Grand River in Ferrysburg-Grand Haven. Built by the McClintic & Marshall Construction Co. in about 1908 for Detroit, Grand Haven & Milwaukee Railway. Later became part of GTW.
Was originally a GTW bridge, but GTW abandoned the Grand Haven line. PM had rights over it. Then line was used by PM-C&O-CSX. Now used by Michigan Shore Railroad, part of Genesee & Wyoming.
(new window) (source) The narrator of this drone video explains that Grand Trunk built the bridge. C&O bought it, CSX owns it, and Lake Shore leases it.
