St. Clair MKT Restored

It's nice to see when one of these gets restored instead of tore down.
NOTE: Susan Robert and Don Williams answered my question about where the water tower went. Their combined comments follow.
The water tower is still there. The depot was moved east over the track into the park and the water tower does not show up in the restored version due to the shift in the angle. According to Raymond George, who is a railroad buff, particularly a MKT history buff, the Appleton City depot is the oldest passenger depot remaining on the MKT line. There is a freight depot in Sedalia that is probably older, but ours is the oldest passenger depot. PS. They ask if any one knows more, please let us know.

The last photo was contributed by Paul Weston. Thanks Paul.
