Forgotten train ...

Today's photo is just a quick follow-up to yesterday's post ... it's a shot I took last summer of the old railway depot in White Sulphur Springs, an abandoned passenger car still sitting beside it after nearly thirty years.


  1. Alright. Now I'm going to have to gather the children up for a road trip. This is so interesting!

    This is how redneck-ed I am, but wouldn't it be neat to have about 4 or 5 of those cars renovated as little guest rooms for a bed-and-breakfast? My in-laws would be rolling their eyes and gnashing their teeth over that idea...

    One of my favorite things about this picture is the stack of net-wrapped haybales behind the boxcar. That's classic small-town Montana.

  2. If you haven't been out that way, White Sulphur is definitely worth a roadtrip! It's gorgeous country, and a nice little town that still hasn't been hit by the urbanization that's gotten so much of the Montana mountain country.

    And I love the B&B idea! I've seen a number of places where old railway cars have been converted into hotel rooms or youth hostels, and I think it would be very cool. (If you've ever been up around Glacier Park, there's a hotel called the Izaak Walton Inn up there ... where you can rent a caboose for the night! I've always wanted to do it, but it's a little out of my budget ...)
