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.
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.
