Here are two pictures of the Cold Spring depot and tower, as seen from
trackside looking southward; taken May, 2000.

It's almost impossible to miss if you are driving Rt. 9 into/out of Cape May.

On a side note, I hear the Dennisville depot is preserved at Historic
Smithville (North of Absecon on Rt. 9). I'll see if I can get to it this
May when my family is out that way.

On another side note, I don't know if I eve mentioned that I found the
depot for Mizpah NJ. It had been removed for preservation by a fellow AGES
ago. As he got toward the end of his life and hadn't done anything with it
more than protect it from vandalism, he passed it on to his brother. The
brother died recently, but not before passing it on to another fellow.
Last summer, this fellow had just moved it to his front yard. I can't put
my hand to my notes right now, but I think he was on Tuckahoe Road, just
outside of Buena.
