    I'm sorry, that I don't have any photos to show, but last Sunday night, the railroad depot in Pulaski caught fire and was 70% destroyed. It had been serving Pulaski County and city as a museum.
    I don't know if it was still housing model railroads, or not. There has been no mention of that on the news.
    The station was a brick building, and was built in the 1870's. The County is planning to rebuild the building. The cause of the fire was determined to be electrical. Volunteers had reported that they had been having problems with the circuit breaker box, for some time.
