    Nice idea for a thread.

    Taken yesterday in Essex Ct.
    Ex: Hartford and Connecticut Valley RR, then New Haven RR.

    This is actually Essex's original freight depot. The original passenger depot has been gone for decades.

    strange one

    I didn't take these pictures, but AHIP (Age Has It's Privileges). I'm not breaking the rules that WHO DAT73 made, just bending them a whole lot.

    I came across these pics of the Grand Canyon Depot, built over a 100 years ago of logs, and still in use.
