Ralls Wabash Gone

This photo, taken in the 1900's, of the Hassard Depot, was donated by Bob McNeill.    Thanks Bob. The following comments are his.
This is one of those candidates for smallest depot. This is an extremely rare shot of a flag stop in northeastern Ralls county on the Wabash railroad. There were others like this on the line across all the states the Wabash served. In this shot a conductor or brakeman has a group of what appear to be women and other railroad employees engaged in some sort of discussion along side what appears to be a diner. Someone even "hazarded" a guess that there was a singing group or a medical emergency.
