<b><i>End of an era...<br></b></i>
A.J. Rogers (sitting) and Mike Brown of Thompson Springs say a last farewell to the old Thompson train depot just a few days before the building was demolished. Work crews removed asbestos from the building in mid-January, and demolition crews began tearing down the old depot on Jan. 20. The Thompson depot once provided the nearest train stop to Moab for passengers traveling east and west on Amtrak trains, including the California Zephyr. Amtrak discontinued stops at Thompson in 1997 in favor of the railroad station in Green River, and the depot has not been used for passenger rail service since that time. The rail line that runs through Thompson is operated by Union Pacific Railroad, which also owns the Thompson depot and recently made the decision to demolish the building.
