ACL Depots in Roanoak/Wadley, Alabama : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I am looking for old photographs and a history of the depots in Roanoke & Wadley, Alabama. They look identical and I'm sure they were designed by the same architect. When were they opened/abandonded?

As far as the condition of these two depots, the one in Wadley looks to have faired better than the one in Roanoke. The Wadley depot is locked up tight and being used I believe by the City to store stuff. The one in Roanoke is wide open and not being used at all.

My book on the Atlanta, Birmingham & Coast has some details on these 2 stations. Service (by predecessor Atlanta, Birmingham & Atlantic) opened to both towns in summer 1907. The book has a photo of the Wadley depot. They remained open until the mid-1970s. I can supply photos and more info on both depots; contact me off-list.
