Missouri-Pacific Railroad Depot

category : Railroad History
Missouri-Pacific Railroad Depot In its boom, the railroad had eighteen scheduled trains running daily. With both passengers and freight, the trains were constantly on the move. Downs also had a large roundhouse with a capacity for ten locomotives, and with its well balanced turntable, could turn the heaviest locomotive with ease. Downs still has its railroad, operated by Kyle Railroad of Phillipsburg, which runs several freight trains weekly.

The Depot is currently being remodeled by the Downs Historical Society.
