UP Train passing old SP depot, Orange TX

UP westbound train passing the old SP depot in Orange, Tx. Too bad they are in the process of changing ties in the area.

The old SP depot is up for sale.
Greg, it was first listed at $299k, the last I checked late last year it was $199k. At one time in December there was a sign on the door stating the property was in the process of being considered for a liquor license. The for sale sign was still out there when I took this photo Saturday (20 Feb 2010).
I could see a restaurant there with a rail flavor..what kind of neighborhood is it? kind of reminds me of an abandoned two-story house in Big Sandy...If I hit the lotto I would love to buy it and refurbish it and either live there or turn it into a railroad bed & breakfast....
It's a mixed neighborhood of historic homes and lower class homes. Now they had a property on the other side of the tracks (sun to your back side)for $80k and still on the curve. Until I win the lottery...
