June, 2018. I haven't been in Owen, Wisconsin, in 10 years.
But I finally took 10 minutes out of our trip along Highway 29 to go in to town.
We parked in the shade at the north end of Central Avenue near the Library.
The depot has a steel standing seam roof and the area looks well kept.
You might want to look at Google maps. The junction is a half mile further north than it was 10 years ago. The tracks going west no longer go cross the millpond and past the dairy.
There's an LP distributor that gets tank cars. And there's a modern feed mill. I have only shown a quarter of what's in town, and this location deserves a visit with my kite camera.
The depot sits East -West where the really old right of way used to run from Abbotsford to Owen. Those tracks have been gone for three quarters of a century.
And I just recovered the little quad copter and then I hear a train horn a quarter mile away.
They came through town about 40 mph, with plenty of noisy power.
