    The lady that lived here told me this is one of four remaining two story depots. The train crossed the river right here, but the depot was relocated here from a block away. A carpenter converted the depot into a four bedroom house.

    I couldn't find this one as it had been moved. I asked a man on the street if he knew about it and he led me to the site with his UTV. He told me about the depot and then told me about how when he was a kid he and a friend used to get the station master in Cuba City to allow them to ride in the caboose on the dead end run to Benton. Once in Benton, they would have to help turn the small steam engine around on the turntable there for the return trip. He told me some other things about railroads in the area from years gone by. Always nice to hear people tell their personal experiences from long ago when these things were still active.

    I was told the building is the old depot. I don't think so. The town had an old wooden depot that is no longer present at the site. Not sure what happened to it.

    Tried to get a look at the Woodman Bridge across the Wisconsin River. Couldn't get close enough to it.

    This is the old Woodman Depot. It has been moved and remodeled. The gentleman that just bought it was working in the yard so we got to chat for quite a while about history, the depot, and a variety of topics. He too is a rider and enjoys history. Another great experience talking with the people you meet along the way.

    Fennimore even has a restaurant that is built to resemble a depot.

    There a lot of cool railroad tunnels in this area. To explore them, you need to be on a bicycle since the RR grade is a bike trail. One is close to a mile long.

    This looks like an old fire trap hotel across from the railroad line.
