Depot Doings: Burgin, KY / Ooltewah, TN / Attalla, AL / Detroit, MI

Today’s featured Southern Railway depots are Burgin, KY (1980), Ooltewah, TN (1970), Attalla, AL (1978) and Michigan Central station, Detroit, MI (1982).

The Burgin, Ooltewah, and Attalla depots have been razed.  The Michigan Central station in Detroit still exists; its condition is slowly declining due to the elements, and its future is unknown at this time.

  1. Just getting caught up and as usual I am enjoying your posts. Funny thing though, the Canadian post photo’s look awful familiar to me 😉

  2. I refer to the Detroit station as the world’s largest pigeon coop since that is the majority of the occupants. Nice shot at Burgin, KY which is gone now.
