We are delighted to announce that the interior of the depot is currently getting a much needed facelift. Take a look at the pictures of the paint job in progress.
We are proud to announce that just four days after construction began, we have a brand new roof. She's looking better all the time. Thanks to all the hard work of the members and especially to Glen Davis, our President, who has been very instrumental in seeking and obtaining grants for the project. Now on to the next project------interior renovation! If you would like to help with this project, please donate using the drop down menu above. Thanks so much!
Great News! We have been approved for both the Alabama Historical Commission (AHC) grant (a little over $13,000) and the Mid-South RC&D grant ($10,000). These combined amounts will give us enough to complete the new tin roof on the depot and begin interior restoration activities.
What an exciting day! The signal has been installed!
The depot is also undergoing a new paint job at this time.
A new roof will be next. It's very exciting to see this progress in restoration!

Here are a few pictures of some recent work done at the Depot. The new signal pole is primed and painted. Once the signal is transferred over, it will be ready to install on the Depot!!
