  1. Another great “Mooney Shot”. You really scrambled to get good angles on the trains in your younger days I see.

  2. Arnold, what are you standing on to get this shot? I would have guessed an overpass.. but no. :)

    Today’s view

  3. Yeah….haunt me with the “younger days” stuff. But you’re right…..read on……

  4. Isn’t it amazing that nothing shows up on an area ‘view’?? There was a pile of rock there, a bitch to stand on so I got 3 boards and some wire from the MoW across the track and made a shaky platform to get some height.
    Was back there around 2006 and the location is now overgrown with evergreens a little too tall to deal with………and, well, I AM older.

  5. You wouldn’t have a shot of the actual station that stood there? The brick building that acts as today’s station was a communications building…

  6. Sorry Todd. It was gone first time I arrived up there in the mid-70s.

  7. Swastika station is coming down. Demolition permit March 2021. Another one gone.

  8. I forgot to add…yes, Todd; you are right; it was a communications building as well. On the demo permit it is identified as “Swastika station.”
