Wants more information on the Reed Street Depot

Peggy Fudge writes:
I'm enjoying the history lesson on railroad, or lack thereof, in Adair County. Ed, you made a comment that we once had a depot on Reed Street. I have long believed that Columbia once had a train running through here until a few people corrected me. Sometime in my younger years I learned that there had been a train depot on Reed Street, but more recently I figured I must have either heard it wrong, remembered it wrong, or the real Reed Street depot was actually in another town. Anyway, at some point, I made the logical leap that if there was a depot, there had been a train. So, was there a depot on Reed Street? Where? Was it a hope of 'If you build it, they will come'? Curiouser and Curiouser. Sounds like modern politics, which truth is, in Adair County, hasn't changed at all. - Peggy Fudge
