The recent appearance of railroad tank cars where the Ann Arbor Railroad dead ends at Maple Road has drawn curiosity and some concern from Saline residents. A long line of railroad cars stretches from Maple Road to behind Faurecia, which no longer accepts freight by rail. The black cars, some marked with graffiti, wear “flammable” signs and a placard with the number “1267” – the Hazmat code for crude oil.
