Description: Any Whistlestop USA... An early crackled, 2 drawer table sits in the center of the old station. Pickled paint of multiple colors remained from the years of ticket taking and baggage check in. Vines grow through what was once the windows of a bustling stop on the C & O southern line. Walking across the floor, the shards of Nehi and Sundrop bottles left littered there by the hobos, transients and town rowdies crunch underfoot. The sun shines on the bottle debris and the glass looks like ice. A train hadn't stopped at this station in many a year. When the wind blows just so, one can still hear the faint cry of a lonely whistle and we find ourselves transported to a simpler time. A time when clocks and watches had hands and messages were sent by telegram rather than text. Dimensions  33.5 w x 20 d x 30 h in.
