Why Are We Doing This?
  • Forrest is home to one of two
    turntables left in Illinois~

    • These mammoth masses
      of iron were often scrapped
      out during the wars and today
      there are only pits where they
      once stood.
    • To recover this piece of history
      from the brambles is our goal
      and perhaps one day a
      beautiful old steam engine will
      rest where many have crossed
      in the past.
    • The Depot will work in concert
      to showcase the generous
      donations of memorabilia that
      we continue to receive and
      desire to display properly.
