The Madison Ohio 1882 NKP Freight Depot

Unread postby ConrailQuality » Tue Jul 21, 2015 8:13 pm

Out in Madison Ohio on the North side of Lake Street sits a little old 1882 Nickle Plate Era wooden freight station. She's been holding up for a long time since she was partially restored in 2009, the group lost interest in depot and moved on with other projects. I've spent quite a bit of time railfanning at the depot documenting the building with as many photos I can take. Pretty soon her fate might be ending soon as that group plans to be demolishing her. Below are some photos I took of the structure.

Photo above is a inside look of the main entrance, I did not enter the building I stuck my camera through the broken window and took the shot.
