Vintage Depots

By Dan Minkus

C&NW Depots in Illinois 

The first is a Detroit Publishing Co. photo of the Elmhurst, IL depot, taken between 1880 and 1899. Elmhurst is a stop on the West Line to Geneva, IL, Clinton, IA and Omaha. It was a stop for through as well as commuter trains. The depot has been replaced.

The second photo is of the depot at Algonquin. The Algonquin depot was on the line to Freeport, which cut off the Northwest Line. This line has been cut back to Belvidere, the site of a Diamler Chrysler plant. The picture is from Don Ross and was taken January 14, 1956.
