The Depot (continued)
Railroad business increased at Ablemans and the depot was enlarged in 1916 to a length of 83 feet as seen in the photo at left. The interior was remodeled to include a larger office of 12 x 14 feet with a 5 foot passage and ticket window at the rear of the office. A 15 x 17 foot men's waiting room was constructed to the south of the office, as well as an 8 by 17 foot warm room and a 17 by 30 foot freight room. The work was done by the Bridge and Building crew working out of the Division Office in Madison.
