Well, we haven't "G'd" a Wabash "L" in a while here, so let's begin, shall we?
You don't need to go South of the Border to visit this location, and when "New" in 1836, was home of two mid-South railroads in 1858 and 1872 respectfully, and was also known as the shipping point for horses and mules, as it is in it's state's "Bluegrass" belt.

No, this is not car floating gone wrong. We're flooded out here, but that's the way it is in this river city.  
I bet though, if you come to my window, that Little Richard, John Lennon and James Brown may come sing you to safety, or at least make your wait for rescue enjoyable.

Well, ummm, yeah...........
I don't think you could have nailed that one on the head any better!
This is the Wabash's Hallsville, Mo depot in 1954, from the Bill Bunch collection, via missouridepots.com
So my clues were -  
"The branch in this day and age is now owned by a city that is known as the birthplace of three of the state's Govenors and the home of brothers who founded a retail juggernaut, and is run by the city's Water and Light Department."
The City is Columbia, MO, which also lends its name to the branch, as we've already been told! The "retail juggernauts" are the Walton brother of Walmart fame, btw.
And the railroad is owned by the city and known as the Columbia Terminal Railroad -  
"And while the one city at the end of the line shares its name with a certain District, the other end city shares a name with a town on perpetual fire. "
So, Columbia/District of Columbia and Centralia, MO (end of the line) and Centrailia, PA, home of the famous underground coal fire that has been buring for decades, and will continue to do so for decades more -

Hows this for quaint?
While I can't show you any more right now (but you could show me by guessing correctly) where this was taken, if you make sure you stay north of Columbia of but west of Mexico, you might find this little town somewhere in the middle....And whatever you do, DON'T FEED THE TRIBBLES!

Don't be blue, Canonball fans! It's Normal to want to have some Champaign when visiting Springfield while you try to GTL........

The Wabash F7 #671 out at Bellevue has finally been refurbished and repainted.  Colors are accurate.  She's still waiting for the "graphics" to be applied and the roof "side grills" need to be put back on...

I recieved these pictures in my inbox the other day and thought I'd share,...  The Wabash 1399 has been  restored by the family in memory of the late owner Lou Adelson. It was dedicated on the 4th of july in Titusville in his memory. (I'm not sure if it is operational yet) also, I'm not "digg'in" the choice of lettering style but none the less it's good to see it repaired and in fresh blue paint!

Maybe you can help me with this one. A friend (now deceased) gave me this photo. I have always wondered where in the woods this one is.

I like old buildings and railroading. When I first saw the picture of the Wabash RR station in Pittsburgh, Pa. I loved it. Where was Wabash RR main offices. Was this station its main office.


Re: Cant Find Pictures of Wabash Station Interior - By hudsonelectric on 08/18/04 at 03:20:12 - 'Wabash_Pittsburgh_Terminal_Interior_Circa_1909.jpg' 65 KB
This is a postcard from my collection showing the interior of the waiting room, circa 1909.

I would love to see some shots of the inside of this station also.  I understand that a fire extensively damaged it in 1946, so the shots should be from before then to see it "as built".  It sure looks great from the outside.  Don't miss the train shed off to the left (curved roof).

OK - Sorry to be so late getting back to you Alco83.  Haven't been on here in a while.  Here are a couple of photos of the old Forrest station building as the place looks now. Pretty sad.

The Maumee & Western runs by the old depot, but it has been moved away from the tracks, right behind the little white shed in the LC photo.  (They're there)  Maybe the depot was moved away from the tracks because the track is in bad condition?    About 20 miles west of LC, the rail says 1903,  but I do not remember the weight.   To give a idea of location, I will attach a map.
I don't know what it is used for now.
General map:  North of LC is Delta, Ohio and the Ohio Turnpike
South: US 24
East: Toledo
Blue line: RR
RR ends just east of town
Old DT&I main crosses west of town
