“Here we go again! Law enforcement has reported sightings of Bonnie, Clyde and their gang on our line. Keep your eyes peeled as we travel from Inkster Junction Station to the rural community of Grosse Isle. If you see anything suspicious then please report to our onboard staff, who are here for your safety. We are hoping for a safe and pleasurable trip! Sit back and enjoy the onboard live music. On arrival at our destination, enjoy your home packed lunch or pick up a smokie or hotdog freshly prepared for our arrival. Walk through the beautifully restored buildings making up the Grosse Isle Heritage Village before picking up dessert or an ice cream and enjoying the lively music. Hop back onboard for a relaxing ride back to the city.”
