Thank you Chad for posting that info here.  I'd searched for the info on the fires with no success.  I'm a many times rider and lover of the "Skunk" train.  They operate on a thin margin so seeing them lose functional property is sad.

Of course, there’s drama on the FB post so I’ll save that and just post the deets - 

-Fire burned down three CWR buildings including bathroom area.

-The initial post faults the CWR - employed care takers of the proprty as using it for a drug operation, however, the “Chief Skunk” Robert Pinoli posted on the page that it was not their employees, who are all randomly drug tested and still fall under strict FRA guidelines, and was in fact faulty wiring that caused the fire. Idk, sounds like some drama between Northspur-area residents and the railroad. 

-No other real info other than they will rebuild the depot area.

Holy cow!

Thank you!
