Historic Caldwell train depot

Day two of our road trip through Idaho, and we're speeding through the southern part of the state. Our trip is a combination of geocaching (working on the Idaho county challenge) and exploring (fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking locations). We stopped to photograph this gorgeous restored train station in Caldwell, Idaho. The structure was built in 1906 and abandoned in the 1980s, along with seven other stations in Idaho. This one was lucky: a foundation was established to restore the building, and today it's spectacular. It still stands beside railroad tracks, but hasn't been used as intended since 1984.

Trains are really Dave's thing, but architecture is mine. So we always search out old railroad buildings and stations as we travel, hoping to find a gem. I think this one qualifies, don't you?
