Along the south side of U.S. 287 at the east end of Quanah, TX, is a "Combo Depot." The "Medicine Mound Restaurant" in Quanah, TX comprises the combination of the FW&DC depot from Chillicothe, TX and the KCM&O depot from Medicine Mound, TX, attached at the far end, as shown.

The freight end of the FW&D depot. Founded in the early 1880s, Chillicothe developed rapidly after the FW&D reached Chillicothe in 1887 . A fire destroyed the town in 1890, and citizens rebuilt south of the rail line. The town was incorporated in 1907 with a population of about 800 (which is today's population). Coincidentally, the KCM&O arrived that year, also. http://www.depots.txrrhistory.com/ABC/Chillicothe/Chillicothe.htm

Shown in 1971, where it had been originally in Chillicothe, the Fort Worth and Denver City Railway depot was built around 1897 when the rr arrived. It has now been relocated to Quanah, TX; where at the right end, is attached the KCM&O depot where it now sits.

The KCM&O portion of the building. The restaurant entryway appears to be added? In 1904, construction of the Kansas City, Mexico Orient railroad began at Sweetwater and in 1909 it had reached the Red River, where the line connected with the parent company line to Wichita, Kansas.
