Coe Rail (CRLE) was an excursion and freight railroad that ran between West Bloomfield and Wixom, Michigan. In 2007 it was renamed the Michigan Air-Line Railway.

The Michigan Air–Line Railway (MAL) was a Class 3 short-line railroad in Oakland County, Michigan. It ran from West Bloomfield to Wixom, Michigan where it interchanged with the CSX. The headquarters and station are in Walled Lake, Michigan.

Sadly like too many rail lines before it, plans are to remove the trackage and sell the land for a rail trail to be called the West Bloomfield Trail.

On January 28, 2011, the railroad applied to abandon the route from Wixom to the end of track near West Bloomfield and since then the railroad has been removed between Walled Lake and the interchange in Wixom, MI.
