In these photos, you see the Railroad Office at the Junction, and the old Depot which is now used as a the McCammon City Hall.

This shed can be seen in the south end of town, and is built using two Union Pacific boxcars as the outer walls. This road crossing is at the junction point of the Ogden and Pocatello Subdivisions.
