Northfield, Minnesota depot built in 1889 by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul RR (which eventually became known as the Milwaukee Road.) The depot was shared with the CRI&P (aka Rock Island Line.) In 1969 passenger service ended at the depot with Rock Island's last Twin Star Rocket train from Kansas City. The depot finally closed in 1982. "Save the Northfield Depot" was organized in 2010 to rescue and restore the historic building. See http://www.northfielddepot.org/
