The Elkhart Train Depot was built in 1900 and serviced the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railroad until 1914. New York Central road the rails for many years. In 1971 passengers started using the Depot for their Amtrak travels. It is used as a stopping place for pick up and delivery of passengers, however tickets cannot be purchased there.
Just on the other side of the tracks across from the depot is the National New York Central Railroad Museum. Both are located downtown Elkhart, IN.
When we arrived, we found the quaint little one street town called Juliette. It is located 8 miles east of Forsyth, GA. If you cross the RR tracks, you just missed the town as it was a street just before the tracks on the right. As I remember, the cafe had already closed for the day, but we walked around and took pictures of the town.
I painted a set of 4 paintings from the town, one of them being the Whistle Stop Depot. They had purchased the depot for one dollar, as it had been sitting in a field for many years. It now sits on the main street of town because of regulations as to sitting along side the tracks. Here are links to the other 3 paintings from the town of Juliette. (That is the town of Whistle Stop.) Whistle Stop Cafe, Fried Green Tomatoes Church, Fried Green Tomatoes (Threadgood) House.
