Venice, Fl. SAL depot : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

As community facilitator on savinf historic Venice SAL depot, am looking for and will appreciate photos, slides, and hands-on memories of deport/site. Sarasota County soon will be owners of depot/site, using ISTEA funds. Restoration of exterior will commence summer 1998. This requested information can be invaluable in our activities andc efforts. Proper credits will be given. Depot was constructed by Brotherhood of Locomitive Enginners as part of their building the new town of Venice starting in 1925.

Check out the August 1997 Model railroader. They had a pretty good article on the depot in there, including drawings
