Appalachia VA and Limestone TN train depots

For the last few  months, I’ve been recording the train depots (if available) and the post offices of many of the small towns we drift through on any given Sunday.  Both the depots and the smaller post offices are slowly going away; the former from neglect, the latter through an excess of penury on the part of the USPS.  Here are two standard issue, well-built train depots that have fallen into ungraceful disuse.
First, here’s the Appalachia depot, on the L&N.








And this is Limestone’s depot on the N&S.  It was, at one time, a stylish building.  No longer.

      I couldn’t figure it out, but you can contact Mike Clifton, Public Works Supervisor, on the website.
