The wood frame IC depot on the Chicago District at Chebanse, Illinois, during winter. Postcard view is from circa 1910.
Brian Patterson: The Depot Building still stands and is in use as the Chebanse Village Hall. The line is now single track.

Dirk Hafner: Was that a coal chute in the background?
Dennis DeBruler: Dirk Hafner A wood grain elevator. It is not unusual to see two buildings in an old photo of a small town: a depot and a grain elevator. A bigger town would have more than one grain elevator.

The depot still stands, but the wood grain elevator has been replaced by a more modern grain elevator.
Fertilizer is a big business for some grain elevators.
I couldn't resist including the corn crib.
In the satellite image, there appears to be a locomotive parked on the siding. But I don't see a fall protector. So it must not be rail served. Is the locomotive owned by CN? They do have a small yard north of here. It continues to amaze me that there are still glass insulators on the cross arms of the code line. Are IC insulators so ubiquitous that they aren't worth anything to collectors?
