  •  Hazards
  • unsafe flooring
  •  Interesting Features
    There are a few fixtures and a rusty furnace.

    The depot was jointly used by the Minneapolis and St. Louis Rwy and the Illinois Central Rwy because the two railroads crossed each other nearby. The tracks of those railroads and the "diamond" crossing are still there and are presently used by the Union Pacific (the former Minneapolis and St. Louis track and Canadian National (the former Illinois Central track).
