DETROIT (WWJ) - It's been decades since a train has been heard or moved in the vacant Michigan Central Station in Detroit. 

Now the owners of the 105-year-old train station are set to make an announcement on its future today. 

Matthew Moroun, son of building owner Manuel "Matty" Moroun, said the announcement will come Monday in front of the 500,000-square-foot, 18-story train station that closed in 1988. Ford Motor Co. board member Edsel B. Ford II has said the Dearborn-based automaker is in talks to buy the station but few details have been made public.
