Idaho - Canyon County Historical Society Nampa Depot
Nampa, ID - On May 20th, 2010, The Canyon County Historical Society, in partnership with The National Trust for Historic Preservation, kicked off a capital campaign to preserve and restore the unique and beautiful 1903 Nampa Train Depot. The Nampa Depot is the only depot in southwest Idaho that has not been fully restored.

The goal is to completely restore the depot and turn it into a railroad museum, exclusively." said president Bob Wagner. "We also have a grand plan for the rest of the grounds, including making the caboose and derrick ADA accessible, building a beautiful courtyard that will be a shrine to Nampa's railroad workers, and finally, a new museum building alongside the depot that will house exhibits on Canyon County's rich history, artifact storage, and offices. It will, ultimately, be a downtown attraction that will make all of Canyon County proud.

Illinois - CB&Q railroad station restoration
Oregon, IL - At 5 o'clock in the morning of Saturday, November 10, 1893, the fire broke out. Despite efforts to save her, the first train depot to serve the people of Oregon, Illinois, burned to the ground.

A modest replacement structure was erected the following year, but it too was damaged by fire 15 years later. Ultimately, the depot that still stands today was built by the Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railway in 1913. What had been in its time an attractive and modern edifice served rail travelers until 1971, when all passenger rail service to Oregon was discontinued.

Through years of non-use, misuse, abuse, and neglect, the once proud depot had suffered. But in 2001, an ambitious and dedicated group of people began a project that continues today...the Oregon Depot Restoration Project.

This website includes details of Oregon railroad history, the ongoing restoration of the depot, and the people who made it all happen. We welcome you!
