Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day one hundred and fifty-two of that project.

This quilt block shows a train depot with two poplar trees on either side. The train depot's roof is a dark blue with a little smoke stack coming out on the right. The roof itself is a large trapezoid shape. The building below is a bright orange square. Two large red doors are in the center with squares on them, and to either side of those doors are light yellow windows. Above the large double doors is a sign that reads in blue against light yellow, "Granby Train Depot, Elevation 7,936 ft."

The train depot is always ready for travelers.

It’s furnished with comfortable couches, pristine bathrooms, and current magazines. Volunteers are on hand until the last train comes in and when the first train pulls out. They serve homemade cookies and have fresh coffee, tea, water and juice. There are sandwiches available at lunch if you are waiting for a train.

People gather to talk and gossip at the depot, have a cup of coffee and swap stories.

It is Julie’s desire to make people feel like they are guests in her living room.

This block shows signage for the train depot in my hometown. We have a good depot. Nothing like the service in That Town, but of course, no one does.

We have another interesting attraction in the “depot neighborhood,” a railroad museum.

It’s very interesting and the railroad hobbyists set up the most AMAZING display of model trains you ever saw.

We are fortunate in Granby to have some very dedicated people improving and adding to the railroad displays.
