The Southern Railway depot in Scottsboro, AL was originally built in 1860-1861 for the Memphis Charleston Railroad. The depot is one of only three remaining pre-Civil War railroad depots in Alabama. It is currently restored. The L&N depot in Madisonville, TN was demolished around 1979 and removed from service.
