This is one of the most nostalgic buildings in the world for me! The depot at Glenwood Springs. When I was growing up, we took regular trips to Glenwood on the Rio Grande Zephyr (granted I was too young to remember) and later Amtrak. Something else very nostalgic that you don't really hear anymore is the sound of five EMD units pulling on an eastbound through Glenwood while swimming in the hot springs.

Didn't it make the whole valley throb as those engines came through? Three or four of them would get a synchronous vibration and the air would fill with the rumble and hum as the came in. I miss those days!
