Hi,

I recently visited the former PRR/TP&W depot at Effner, IN because I've been hearing rumors that the railroad wants to tear it down in the forseeable future due to its current state of dereliction. This has gotten me wondering that once it's gone, will there be any TP&W-only depots left besides the one at the Illinois Old Threshers Museum in Hamilton? I was able to locate that one and the jointly operated IC/TP&W depot at El Paso, IL but I can't find any other ones that were strictly TP&W. Does anybody know of one?

I believe Kolbe is still there, an all-metal thing inside the wye where the industrial lead to the Caterpillar Mapleton foundry leaves the TP&W, which owns east of there, and Pioneer's Keokuk Junction, which owns west. Pioneer built a small car shop to the west of it and most photos do not show the station anymore because they are taken from the west, here is the newest one I could find:

Laharpe had a very similar depot a few years back but I am not sure if iti s still there.
