Comments/Directions:
Very well preserved depot, lots to see and do in Springfield. "Springfield Union Station was designed in the Richardson Romanesque style in 1896 as a combined passenger terminal for several railroads serving Springfield, including the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Chicago, Peoria and St. Louis Railroad, Illinois Central Railroad, and the St. Louis, Peoria and Northern Railway. Although the structure was intended to be used jointly by these railroads, the Illinois Central was the predominant carrier, and the architect was Illinois Central chief architect Francis T. Bacon. The station was built in 1897-1898 at a cost of $75,000, and opened for business on January 2, 1898.[2] During its 73 years of active service, the station carried substantial passenger train traffic to and from Chicago, St. Louis, and other cities. .... wikipedi"

Comments/Directions:
Built in 1912 "The Apex railroad station was chartered in 1854. A town grew up around the tracks, and was incorporated in 1873. The name "Apex" comes from this being the highest point on the rail line. Today, the rail heritage remains visible as new buildings are constructed in a "train-station" style. It's almost difficult to distinguish between what was, and was not, a depot. Even the new Town Hall looks like an oversized depot. And on US-64 at Salem Street, there is a full-sized reproduction of a train station, housing a surveying firm. [See Gallery.] The "real" train depot is on the north side of the downtown area. The station and the surrounding buildings are built of brick, and all date from around 1912. That's because in 1911, the entire downtown area, which was constructed of wood, burned in the Great Fire. As structures were replaced, fireproof materials such as brick were used. The train depot served for many years as the town library. In the 1990's, a regional library facility was constructed, freeing up this historical space. The current occupant is the Apex Chamber of Commerce. The building is on the National Registry of Historic Places. At the site: In front of the depot are benches and walkways. A caboose sits on the right side on the station. A USGS Benchmark can be found a few feet above the ground on the left rear corner. A CSX operations building, built in 1910, is 300 feet north of the station. The downtown area has many nice antique and speciality stores where browsers are welcome!" source https://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WMJMA_Durham_and_Southern_Passenger_Depot_Apex_N_Carolina
