Railroad Depot Photos

Sadly, this depot no longer exists. When it was still with us, it originally served as the Illinois Central Railroad's freight depot in Rockford, IL (a separate passenger terminal still exists nearby). At one time, the City of Rockford wanted to turn it into a produce market, to help revitalize the west side and near-downtown area, but unfortunately, it was lost to fire before those plans came to fruition. IC successor Canadian National continues to serve Rockford today, as do Union Pacific, Burlington Northern Santa Fe, and Iowa, Chicago & Eastern.
