    The Sanborn map shows the depot complex being along 2nd between Pine and Broadway, and a check on google maps shows that might be right. But now the freight depot is setting on 4th between locus and elm. Anyone have a story on that? Looking at trackage maybe KCS moved it up and used it off that spur that is still partially there.
