South Dakota - Miranda Depot
Miranda. SD - The former Chicago & Northwestern Railroad depot of Miranda, Faulk County, South Dakota, is undergoing restoration and preservation. The depot is a classic one-story country depot built about the time the railroad line was built as an extension west from Huron in 1886. The depot was closed for a period of time after the depression, so if you were to check your railroad history records, you may not find a reference to Miranda during that time and also other periods the depot was inactive. Final closure was in 1956, and ownership transferred to the Miranda grain elevator. The grain elevator moved the depot across the street to a yard owned by the elevator. It was used for storage, and it was painted and re-roofed, keeping the building in good condition. Those factors---periods of inactivity, and some steps taken to preserve the building from the elements---help keep the building in good condition.

Tennessee - Cowan Railroad Museum
Cowan, TN - The Cowan Railroad Museum represents the railroad that has been an integral part of the city since 1849 when construction began on boring a railroad tunnel through the mountain two miles southeast of town. The Cumberland Mountain Tunnel was finished in 1852 before the railroad actually made it to Cowan from Nashville. The town, the railroad and the tunnel still exist today. In support of that endeavor and later frequent trains through this region, a substantial frame depot was built in 1904, and that building is where the museum now houses its collection for your enjoyment.

Tennessee - Lynnville Railroad Museum
Lynville, TN - Arriving in Lynnville, you’ll exit your car as if stepping out of a time machine into the early 20th century. Right across the street from the historic business district with its 19th century architecture and old fashioned street lamps is the beautifully landscaped reproduction of a turn-of-the-century depot. An antique truck is at the freight dock awaiting loading. Inside, a telegrapher sits at this post, keying a message to the station down the line. The conductor stands at the window, watch in hand, mindful of his schedule.

The depot displays an ever growing collection of railroad memorabilia. Almost everything, from track laying tools to old railroad watches, has been donated by local people with a special link to railroad history. An operating scale model railroad depicts Lynnville as it was in the 1930’s when the L & N moved passengers as well as freight.
