The 1904 Train Depot at Braidwood, Illinois-- Part 2

Comment:  The Chicago and Alton Route.

"On the mainline 57.3 miles south of Chicago.  Also with a spur off of a branch that ran between Joliet and Coal City.  Later this road became the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio, route for such passenger trains as "The Abraham Lincoln" and the "Midnight Special."

Comment:  Pictures of what it looks like today are included.  It is now home to the Braidwood Historical Society.
