Old Fort Depot

oldfort

This is the old depot, now a tourism center, is in Old Fort NC.
The caboose there is open to the public and still retains some features of this crew car, including this advisory (in stencil caps) above the toilet:
CAUTION
TOILET WILL NOT
OPERATE PROPERLY
WITHOUT 60 POUNDS
MIN. ON TRAIN LINE GAUGE

The stove is still there, a work desk, three, I think, couches that could be used as beds, and so forth.  Old Fort is about 7 miles east of Black Mountain on Hwy. 70.
