    The Sanderson Amtrak station is a flag stop train station in Sanderson, Texas, USA, served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. It's real remote out here... - a world away from Dallas/Houston etc.

    Since at least 2007, Sanderson has been the least-used Amtrak stop in its national system. An average of fewer than one passenger per day boarded or detrained at Sanderson in 2010.

    A new effort to save the railway station is being made by the Sanderson Depot Association. The present owners of the station have set August 15 2011 as a deadline for the end of discussion. If a plan and funding to move the depot are not in place by that time the owners will no longer give consideration to any group and the depot will be demolished.

    Years of rubbish piling up:

    The station itself is a crumbling ruin, albeit still with one door locked and machinery running inside and an air-con unit on the wall outside to keep it cool. Really wasn’t expecting to find that, as the rest of it is in a really bad state.

    Outside the station were some rail cars lying alone, no engine in sight. I think the operator had parked them up here – they looked too good to have been abandoned.

    A nice little explore, on a very hot day. It was about 98 degrees…

    This place has had an amazing history - and was quite a bustling station once upon a time. I just love the U S of A.:Not Worthy
