That's a great find! I've been looking for one too - seems like they're all either gone or in California...

I like it. With access it could fit in a lot of yards. Boy if this old shack could talk. It would be really great if some old photos could show up to mark its history. Im wondering what the floor is, and if the door in the picture is a slider. This should be a great restoration, Id love to have it. Annother example for my family and friends to have me committed!

Looks like a fun and interesting project.

20+ years ago there was one about twice that size in Graysville, Indiana that on the corner of 63 and 154. Only one in these parts I ever remember seeing. Long gone.
Too cold here in the winter to run a business out of something like that.

Very nice booth. Great for reconstruct an old station. Is sure that it is from 1913?
