  • I have never been to Karnak. However, I would beg the 600 or so residents of this village to immediately take action to save this depot. I would imagine that if someone would begin the program to do so, there would be plenty of volunteer labor to do what is needed. A few fund raisers for money to purchase the needed materials could be done. I would hope that whoever owns this property would donate it to the village. I wish I were there to help. My email address is above and if I can help from a distance I would like to be ask.

  • The article says there is nothing so obsolete as a railroad station. The same may be said someday about the automobile and the swaths of concrete and asphalt we drive them on. Are we really that better off today, than those days when you caught the train for a trip to St. Louis? Sometimes I wonder.

  • It is my understanding that there was a depot at Reynoldsville. If anybody knows what it looked like or what happened to it, I'd sure like to know.
