So cool! An old train depot with old trains still in it has always been one of my UE Wish List items. Thanks for sharing!

That train is looking worse and worse with each passing year, and now the depot wall has begun collapsing. That's incredibly sad. Interesting to note they left the train there although the tracks were removed in 1985...

Funny story, I went to the college right outside of there, and no one had any idea or even thought of going into those warehouses. The engines in the first bay are still in remarkable shape, but the roof is almost gone in the second bay making everything in there almost rusted through. I noticed your write up after trying to find information after checking out this place. If you are ever down towards western KY, let me know. I would love to do a meet and greet.

I agree, this is a great find. My dad loved train history so I grew up around a lot of the old steam engines in our area that the historical societies would restore...this thread brings back memories...

Who owns it?

At first I thought it was owned by a local lumber mill, but it has farm equipment and tobacco hung so the property may actually be privately owned.

It was to be a small railroad museum celebrating the history of the Morehead & North Fork, and the locomotives and various assortments were left after the line it connects to -- the Chesapeake & Ohio Lexington Sub. was dismantled in 1985. The line from the cement plant south towards Wrigley and West Liberty was abandoned a very long time ago, but the tracks remained north through Clearfield and the Lee Clay Factory to the C&O till the early 1980s.
