The Last Train, Long Ago.

No more calls to board,

The last tickets to ride have long ago been sold,

Even the rails no longer pass,

Broken in spirit,

Yet not ready to succumb,

Maplewood Depot, Bethlehem, New Hampshire

    • Slowly but surely you are right. The lean of the building is accurate. I used my TS-E 17mm F/4L to correct for perspective and the keystone effect. All the lean you see is 100% the way the building is standing.

      It’s kind of sad really. As I mentioned in another reply, there’s another very similar old train depot in town that was perfectly restored and converted into a home. Too bad the Maplewood Depot wasn’t so lucky. My next trip to the area I’m going to be sure to photograph the converted depot for comparison.

  1. A worthy derelict, surely with many ghosts and stories to tell. Thanks for the explanation of the 100%-accurate lean. I was worried about your inherent sense of balance and plumb. Also, lovely tone-mapping. Of course.

  2. Stunning photos and sad that all this building became a state of broken down. Hope one day is will be repair to the former glory.
    Thanks and have a wonderful Wednesday.
