Moline Makes Plans To Move Old Train Depot


The City of Moline will soon make plans to move the old rail depot to its new home on the Western Illinois University Riverfront Campus.

The Moline City Council approved a motion on Tuesday night, June 18, 2013, for the city to take the lead on moving the historic building.

Last year, the depot was in danger of being torn down to make way for a the new I-74 bridge, but the Moline Preservation Society launched a successful grassroots effort to save it.

No word yet on when the building will be moved.
