Long Description:
The railroad is gone but the station is still there. It was the police station but now it's fully restored and the office of Drs. Waldron and Holton.

If you look over to the right (see picture) you will see some of the original tracks remain. They go right up to the sidewalk and then disappear. When I looked at the station, I could almost visualize how it looked all those years ago. It is completely restored and if you look hard enough, you can see people lined up to buy tickets.
