    Old station on the Lincoln Highway. The first of the intercontinental highways. Preserved as a road side attraction. Notice the narrow old style tires.

    Former storage building:



    ..and maybe this is why car companies went under. This was a large fitness center with saunas, racquetball courts, hot tubs, weight rooms, etc.. at a car dealership.

    Restored train station in Moravia, Iowa. There are a lot of old stations all over the country, some restored some not. A part of our past and maybe again, our future?

    depends on the station

    this station in Worcester MA was abandoned for ages. it was restored less than 10 years ago. sometimes they're worth restoring, sometimes they aren't. unfortunately, many of the old buildings just don't meet the requirements of modern legislation.

    Do trains still run there?

    The beautiful Union Station in St Louis was restored.. as a mall. No trains. The Amtrak/Greyhound station down the street is notoriously hideous.

    The Eads bridge was partially (in my opinion) restored, no real trains, but the MetroLink does run on it. Finally put traffic back on it, too.

    This picture and the next are a couple of my favorites from our 2009 Rally tour. Taken in Harpers Ferry, WV.
