cl2brown Does anyone know if this station is still standing? Went out a few weeks ago to check it out and couldn't find it where it's shown to be on the map!

quiksilver i love old train stations, my dad grew up in a number of them, a couple of the towns he grew up in are on this site, coldwell and jackfish, hearing his stories made a real soft spot in my heart for stations, too bad this one is in such disrepair, sad to see them go.
