For our train enthusiasts, here are some pictures of passenger train related items we have at the Decatur RR Depot Museum.
They depict a train order desk for messaging communication between depot masters and train engineers, a very rare passenger train ticket case (tickets were tantamount to cash so had to be secured), a ticket for the L&N Hummingbird, a ticket issuance desk, and a small roll of blank L&N tickets ready to be issued.
David Breland is kind of a big deal in Morgan County. His memory goes WAAAAY back (check out his picture), but he also is a local expert in Morgan County history. David is Director of Historical Resources and Events for the City of Decatur in Morgan County, Alabama.
While this site was developed to share our local treasures with our own community and armchair visitors from around the world during COVID-19, please visit our museums, attractions, hotels, shops, and restaurants in person when all of this craziness is over. Plan your visit to Decatur-Morgan County and Downtown Decatur, Alabama.
