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.
