Community ranks four possible new locations for Craig depot

Union Pacific gives the community about a year to find a new home for the historic Craig train depot

Saving the Craig train depot will require between $100,000 and $1 million dollars, and a move from its historic location at the south end of Yampa Avenue, as participants at two recent community meetings learned. The depot was built in 1917. It was scheduled for demolition this year according to Sara Thompson Cassidy, director of public affairs for owner, Union Pacific. As a result of its current location between two operating tracks, the depot must be moved, if it is to be saved.
