Except during the winter months, guests at the Depot Inn & Suites may borrow golf carts
to drive themselves along Wabash Way, which is on the old Wabash railroad line,
to the Chris Guenzler Millionth Mile Lookout Point.
Photos From The First Days Of The Train Watching Lookout Structure
On Monday morning, March 26, 2007, a large rectangular gazebo type structure was set on a bed of rocks perched high above the two BNSF mainlines through the City of La Plata, Missouri. This new structure provides an ideal place to watch more than 70 freight trains that travel along the rails below each day.
