    The plant looks like a Plastastruct Project that is not impossible. The stations are sweet.

    Does anyone know where I can find a picture of a train depot built in about the 1850's or earlier and demolished in the 1980's.
    I have been searching for a while now with no results.
    If you are interested in searching for images it was in centralia illinois I have found 2 photos and they aren't the best.
    I'll attach one of them.
    Thanks in advance.

    The Centralia Area Historical Society probably would be your best first-stop for info. Their museum has a lot of ICRR stuff. http://www.centraliamuseum.org/

    You might also try contacting the Illinois Central Railroad Historical Society:

    Sunday afternoon found me poking around the harbour area with my camera. Here are a couple of the many shots I took (lots were of boats so I won't post those).

    I guess this is an office, for what I don't know.

    I actually went down there to get some reference shots of oil storage tanks. Here are a couple. I like the first one because it shows they don't always have the circular steps around them.

    Here's a loading dock. Always on the lookout for interesting clutter.

    Clutter? Did I say clutter? How about a whole yard full of rusted scrap?

    Yes, it is the eastern gap. I drove around Unwin Ave and Commissioners St. at the foot of Cherry St. in Toronto. That is one very cool place!!!
