The thing is, every town more than a few hundred people,
at some point had a depot, if a RR passed through.

Of course, once passenger and LcL freight stopped being common in those towns,
they started getting boarded up and eventually bulldozed or moved.

The tiny town I live in had TWO depots,
as two railroads crossed each other just northeast of 'downtown'.

Both have been gone for ages now,
and I doubt anyone is around who can remember them first hand.

Due to how they were laid out,
they made poor candidates for any other uses.

Some were moved and made into homes,
but most are gone now.

One thing I have noticed within the hobby,
is how few people who model the Amtrak or later era,
model boarded-up depots that are ready to fall down.
