Although they don't have the importance that they once had, the Station was once the 'happening place' in many towns.

Whether freight, passenger, or a combo, these stations will be the focus of this month's Photo Gallery.

Either model or prototype photos are welcome, and these photos can feature either the exterior or interior of the structure.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.


In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Around the run of the last century, the Michigan Central built a beautiful brick structure to serve the City of Albion, MI. It still stands and serves Amtrak with several passenger trains a day. There is an insurance company the uses the building. There is no agent for the rr. At one time the NYC had a great fleet of trains on the then double track mainline between Chicago and Detroit.

This HDR photo shows the station as it appeared just before Amtrak defaced the sight with some of their new signs.

Frank,

That is on the New York, Susquehanna & Western in Sparta, NJ. I have more pictures of it (in that state of repair/disrepair). I'll look for them. There is still the remnants of a water tank next to the station.

Bruce, when I posted it I though you'd have an idea where it was. For some reason Sparta had a sorta' familiar ring to it. I was born in Montclair and we left NJ when I was a budding teenager (13). When we moved to FL in 1956 I found out I was one of them dern Yankees.

Hi blokes,

Here is a couple of shots I took back in 1995, just after the old railway line to Finley had closed down.

Finley is in the Riverina area of southern New South Wales, and the station is typical of the weatherboard construction of the era from the 1890s onwards.





The open-type lever frame still stands, defying the elements....



The view from the 'car-park'

Alas, all gone now....

As far as I know, the buildings still stand, and are used as an Historical attraction.


I haven't been there in these 20 years...

This little station in Baden, Ontario was built by the Grand Trunk Railroad in 1856.
I built this model version of it in 2000, and my friend and forum member Lance Russwurm took this photo of it.

This beauty was built for the New Jersey & New York RR (Erie) in Hillsdale, NJ in 1872. It also served as the company headquarters. It is still used by New Jersey Transit.
