Looks like we have to hold our breath again and see what happens.

I am happy to announce that the depot will be saved! A farmer from nearby Homer Glen has purchased the depot and plans to relocate it to his farm for museum use on August 15th. Thanks to the New Lenox Historical Society for their efforts to raise awareness and help save the depot!

Thomas

Photographed on July 8. Both had places to go but only one had to give way to a new CVS.

(I don't think the CVS footprint overlaps that of the station but maybe it was too tight.)

The New Lenox depot successfully arrived at Konow's Corn Maze last Wednesday. Here it is as it appeared yesterday evening. There was some sort of unrelated event going on at the farm and many people stopped by to take a look.

Another great accomplishment in the railroad preservation field!
