DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. may buy Detroit's long-vacant Michigan Central Station.

Detroit media are still speculating about the details and the timing, as the Detroit Free Press reports that sources say the move will happen.

The Free Press also reports that Ford executives have spoken before about increasing the company's presence in historic Detroit neighborhoods, even as it upgrades facilities at its Dearborn, Mich., headquarters.

Michigan Central Railroad, part of the New York Central System, built the depot in 1913. It was closed in 1988 and re-opened to limited tours and special events in recent years.
