Historic Train Station Displaced
Some local residents were concerned this past weekend that a West-End landmark may have seen its last days. Construction began on a new project at the parking lot near Webster Street and Lincoln Avenue that once contained a Southern Pacific Railroad station. The small ticket booth received a reprieve from the wrecking ball when it was protected earlier this year (“Quick Action Saves West End Railroad Landmark,” Feb. 2).
The former ticket booth has been relocated toward the rear of the property which is expected to become a condominium complex. The property owner is required to restore the protected structure to a prominent location on the site.
