TRAVERSE CITY

GPS Coordinates: 44.758075, -85.609259

Dunno anything about the depot, but at least it has been restored and is used by several small businesses.
A dinner train (the Grand Traverse) used to operate out of here until a few years ago.
The two sets of pictures were taken about 5 or 6 years apart, with the bottom set being the older pictures.

TRAVERSE CITY

Well, I will get some flack over this, maybe, cause it's not a depot, but if you subscribe to Village Press' Live Steam Magazine, this is where it comes from!  (OK, so they added and Outdoor Railroading to the title a few years ago).  They also put out a number of other magazines covering the machining trade, among others.  When I stopped by there, I was amazed at the number of specialized magazines they work on.
