Today we made a road trip over to wonderful Hamlet NC. Home of the most photographed train depot in the East. The 120 year old station has been lovingly refurbished to its original glory in the past 10 years. It was also moved 210 feet, in one piece, from a location across the tracks. Amtrak still stops for passengers and I will be traveling through there on a train trip from Raleigh NC to Winter Haven FL in a few days. We spent an entire beautiful afternoon touring the depot and chatting with the volunteers who range from former engineers, porters, dispatchers and others. A highlight was meeting 94 year old Riley Watson who still volunteers at the depot. He is mentioned in the PBS film link below.
