Railroad Stations - Part 2

Here are some more fantastic vintage railroad stations. Although some are no longer active railroad stations and are used for other purposes, the fact that they have been restored and saved for all to see is very cool.

This is a replica of a station in Langley, South Carolina, and it houses a model railroad exhibit at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin. There is no Hood Junction. Mr. Hood was a major contributor to the model rail exhibit.

Built by Missouri Pacific Railroad in 1917. Now a Bill Clinton museum in the town where he was born - Hope, Arkansas.

M-K-T ("The Katy") railroad station in its namesake city - Katy, Texas. Built in 1913. Restored, and now a city museum.

Former Missouri Pacific station in suburban St. Louis - Kirkwood, Missouri. Built in 1893, now an Amtrak stop.

Former Santa Fe station in Wickenburg, Arizona. Built in 1895 by Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix Railway. Now used as a museum and city offices.

It IS amazing that these have survived; I can imagine somebody out there is just drooling to tear them down.
