Ryan Reed adds:
" The depot is gone, moved but gone, the section house is gone, the flour mill and flathouse across the highway are also gone - burned to the ground. Several coal sheds had been picked up and sent to the Marcellus branch to store grain doors. All those structures were still there in the mid-60s. Ralston got hit hard with the Gap housecleaning from '67 to '70. The two cribs were cut down with chain saws after '82 and the wood was buried outside of town."
