Train Tracks Bring us Home

I live in a depot, so really train tracks could bring me home. They could have, that is. Before our house was moved out to the country, and changed into a house. That was many, many years ago.

Mum and I, however, believe we have found where our depot was.

We’ve always known that it was the depot in the little town we live outside of, but as we wereย taking pictures by the now train tracks, we found some train tracks that led into a building–rather, the building was built on top, after the train tracks were no longer used.

And we think that this is where our depot used to be.

Mum saw this wall while we were driving one day, and we thought it was perfect to take pictures in front of.

One reason we think this is where our depot used to be: These floorboards. They’re the same as in our house.

Thanks for taking pictures for me, Mom!

  1. I love houses that have some history to them, or which used to be something else (mine was once a shop). And it’s so exciting when you make a new discovery, like your depot!

  2. This would make you wonder about all the passings before. It’s a little like life. Here for 80 years or so, gone tomorrow. You look so lovely in the pictures. Your mother is an excellent photographer. And you’re a great subject.

  3. I grew up around trains, too, and love to hear them thundering in the distance as they approach town. There’s something sacramental about them. Loved your photos. Enjoyed your story. Stopping in from UBC.
    Blessings.

    1. Penny, we lived in my grandparents house right next to the train tracks for a week one summer, and I remember them keeping me awake all night! We live just a couple miles away from the train tracks, so out here we can still here them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree with you, I love hearing trains! Even when I’m trying to sleep. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for coming by, and letting me share my adventure!

  4. I love this post, Amalia. The photos are gorgeous. It would be so incredible to put the pieces together and discover something so old and unique.
