Wabash Railroad Bridge
Posted February 10, 2016, by Judith Wicks (jroose1970 [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I was wondering if you would be able to pull up any pictures of the Wabash train station that was in Harvey, Ia. I have reason to believe my husband and I may have purchased a building that could be the old station. We've been told it's a historic building and we are currently restoring it for a family home. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Also, there were at one time three railroad lines that ran through Harvey. The Wabash, the Burlington,(CB&Q) and the Rock Island. The CB&Q depot was moved for a Mr.Durham's use back in the day and the Rock Island was burnt down. This leaves the Wabash, where was it, and what happened to it? Thank you for your time.
