Former Decatur train warehouse may get new life

December 22, 2014

    An old train warehouse will be returning to Decatur one of these days ... in pieces, just as it left the city 10 or so years ago.
    The disassembled warehouse was situated along the Erie Railroad tracks, off Winchester Strett and just north of Arnold Lumber Co. It was taken apart years ago by an Amish crew and moved to Geneva, where it has ended up at Limberlost Construction. It has been there for years, and Limberlost owner Mike Schwartz says he is going to get rid of it probably around the first of April.
