Hi,

While doing some depot research earlier today I stumbled across a photo of the former Rock Island station at De Pue, IL from 2014. It said the depot was demolished only a week after the photo was taken, however, I went on Google Earth and the depot was still standing as of October 2015. Can anyone confirm that this depot has been demolished?

Thanks,
Thomas Dyrek

Yes, that is the same depot. Hopefully it's still standing 9 months later.

Thanks,
Thomas

Visited De Pue today and unfortunately the depot has been razed. However, the interurban depot across the street is still there and in pristine condition.

The CRIP station was removed early in 2017.
The Chicago, Ottawa & Peoria Railway (Illinois Traction) station is now the Selby Township Library.
