Notes About Existing Stations...

Anita (Soo Line) - This depot was originally in Anita (Marshall County). That town no longer exists (can anyone give a specific location?). The building was moved to Theif River Falls in 1956 and used as a yard office.

Thief River Falls (GN) - This is the third GN depot that was built in TRF. The first burned and this one replaced the second. It was originally located on the east side of Main Avenue.

Viking (Soo Line) - This depot was originally on the east side of Main Street, on the north side of the tracks in Viking.
