Dear Lynn (and depot list subscribers)

Here are 2 photos of the Nashotah, Wisconsin Milwaukee Road depot taken
in 1973.

Here is some more information from my friends in Madison:
Verne Brummel jmb@msn.com

"The depot at Nashotah is of a unusual design, at least for the Milwaukee
Road. This depot was a train order office until 1959,
and then remained in railroad use until the last four passenger trains using
it were discontinued: Chicago - Minneapolis local trains #55, 58 in 1969;
and Milwaukee - Watertown "Cannonball' trains #12, 23 on July 31, 1972.
This depot still stands, in private use."
Craig Bluschke

"Here are my 1973 photos of the Milwaukee Road depot at Nashotah. After I
replied to your email this morning I got to thinking - I seem to recall
that I drove by this depot a couple of years ago and noticed that it had
been nicely restored and appeared to be somebody's house."
