Elkhart Train Depot

Elkhart, Indiana

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.

Whistle Stop Depot

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.

South Shore Line

South Shore Line from South Bend to Chicago

The South Shore,

South Bend, Indiana.

 

Since I lived in South Bend, Indiana, I exhibited in shows in the area and wanted to capture some of the history of South Bend. The South Shore Line was popular in earlier years, which ran from South Bend to Chicago.  The South Bend station was located downtown across from the LaSalle Hotel. The South Shore still runs from South Bend to Chicago and stops between, but the station was moved to the airport on the west side of South Bend. I wanted to focus the painting on the end of the line, where the passengers exit the train at the South Shore Station. To capture the reflections of the lights, I painted the scene as if it was a light rain, creating the wet pavement  I even put a Studebaker in the background, since Studebaker was the main industry in South Bend at the time. I hope you enjoyed your trip back in time.
