Station Improvement:
A new depot opened in Carlinville in November 2017, and it was officially dedicated a month later. Located about five blocks west of the elegant Public Square on the edge of downtown, it replaced a small, enclosed shelter.  The 1,200-square foot depot, built of cast stone and topped with a gabled, seamed-metal roof, was designed by the Chicago-based firm of Muller+Muller.
