    Wow -- what a fine looking depot! I'm glad that it has retained its authenticity and I can appreciate the infinite sums of money required to restore it. I sometimes see depots restored for "adaptive re-use" that have been ruined architecturally. I'm glad that they survive, but am saddened that the owner has no regard for historic significance.

    Thanks for your great photos and the link!

    I'm not sure if I posted this photo before, but the appearance of the Lehigh Valley depot at Flemington Jct., NJ could be greatly enhanced with a few hours cleanup work with a chainsaw. In the summer, it's almost completely camouflaged. At least it still stands however and the adjoining business owner has maintained the roof, a key element for survival.

    Found these Florida East Coast playing cards in my mother's basement over Christmas. I remember seeing them as a kid. I'm uncertain of their age, but views with automobiles look to be from the 1930s. The diesel seen on two of the cards is the FEC's E-3, Henry M. Flagler leading the train of the same name which operated only from 12/1939 to 12/1940. $1.25 seems like an astronomical amount to pay for a deck of souvenir playing cards then or even in the '40s. My grandparents vacationed in Florida in the '50s, so perhaps the same product simply carried on through the decades.

    Oh, that's very interesting Marilynne! 1939 to 1962 fits pretty closely with what I reckoned. My grandparents retired in about 1960 near Ft. Lauderdale and likely then rode the train less. The railway unions struck the FEC on 01/23/1963, setting in place landmark changes to the railroad that forever changed its operations. Thank you for the link -- pretty cool information there!

    By the way, if you don't have it, you might enjoy a copy of Seth Bramson's Speedway To Sunshine, c. 1984. It's a wonderfully done hardcover book on the FEC's history.
