Train Station Saturday: Dickson City

Today's stop takes us to Dickson City.

The borough wisely preserved a freight house where the tracks cross Boulevard Avenue.  It's not used much-- only for an excursion train stop or two during the year, including a visit from Santa.

The clock is a relatively recent addition.  Legend has it the clock came from the old Dickson City bank.
This one even comes with its own caboose, a really nice touch.

However, I have a warning for my friends in Dickson City.  I noticed a couple of broken windows.  The glass on the clock face is also broken.  Some slate tiles on the roof need to be replaced.  It looks like water is getting in.  This is a great little building.  Please, don't let it fall in to disrepair.
