History of depot clarified

It was interesting to read about the Never Go railroad. However, there was a big mistake concerning the depot.

I lived on Railroad Avenue when it was a dirt road, down from the depot. We were there in the late ’40s and early ’50s.

Someone bought the depot, and cut off our road with a big cable. They fixed up the depot, and after getting acquainted with them, I was able to enjoy visiting them and was amazed at how well they had converted the old depot into a comfortable home. They owned the lumber mill at the eastern end of Donner Lake.

After we became acquainted, they dropped the cable and let us drive through. I left to go to college in 1950, so am not sure how long they owned the place.
