The NKP depot at Portland was destroyed in a derailment in 1962.

I've never seen a picture of the GR&I depot that surely was in Portland somewhere.

If you're patient enough, everything eventually shows up. Thank you for sharing that, wonder if that's 1913, when there was massive flooding.

A Pennsylvania Railroad six-wheeler posts outside the station along with it's crew and an assortment of interested spectators. The picture was taken during the flood that soaked Portland in 1904.. article says 1904

Here is another photo of the demise of the Depot
