Train stations

I have mentioned the Facebook group You know You're From Terrell When........before. Its a wonderful page with lots of memories from people that grew up in Terrell, Texas. One of the discussions is about old railroad stations. I know the first picture is the old freight depot that ran East/West. Is the second photo an old freight depot also that ran North/South? Maybe someone from the group can help me out.

I know the old passenger station was demolished some time ago.

Don't forget to visit the Terrell Daily Photo Facebook page and hit the "like" button.

A link to the past. Love seeing these; I think I'll suggest that for a theme day!

I hate when they demolish these buildings...they are so iconic and should be preserved in my humble opinion.

Re your comment about Bob Evans - the only "bar" they have is a breakfast bar... :-)

But the food is usually pretty good.

comme en France, malheureusement les vieilles gares ferment et sont d├ętruites pour devenir des petits HLM

I can see these turning into coffee houses or small restaurants.

They'd make a cool antique store, but we probably have enough of those already :)

These buildings don't look anything like what I think of as a train depot. But it's sad that they were demolished. :(

Would have been a perfect depot restaurant with fried green tomatoes on the menu.

Where is the second depot (the north south one) located? I grew up working in my uncle's print shop in Terrell in the 60's, 70's and early 80's. I know where virtually everything you shoot is in Terrell, but this one escapes me. I even tried finding it on Google Earth with no luck. Now it has my curiosity up?

The second depot is on Grove street, just south of moore, east of 34.
