Name That Station!

Are you sure that's not an abandoned Mexican jailhouse? I'll guess Sanford, FL.
The look of ramshackle desolation is similar to that of the old Sanford passenger station, but sorry, it's not Sanford.
It might make a great Taco Bell, though.

That AmShack in Tomah is a real head scratcher.... why have that there if (according to sites I've seen) the building is open and accessible and FAR better looking?
It was probably closed at one time, It was definitely open when I stopped by for a photo essay on a road trip back in May 2009, complete with a system map from sometime between 1999 and 2001:

Correct. Didn't realize until after I posted that the MARC train really narrows it down.
Does MARC not stop at BWI? I'd think that since Amtrak is more express-y and MARC is more commuter-y then they would be stopping at all stations with significant patronage. Is BWI not busy enough for them?
Amtrak: Pacific Surfliner (100000000000), Southwest Chief (5), California Zephyr (1), Coast Starlight (6), Capitol Corridor (1), Empire Builder (2), Acela Express (1), LSL (1), NE Regional (2)
Non-Amtrak: NCTD Coaster (at least 20), Metrolink (4), SD Trolley (at least 20), LACMTA Red Line (at least 50), Seattle Streetcar (1), Chicago 'L' (probably 13), NYC Subway (probably 15), WMATA Mass Transit (probably 20), LIRR (1), Las Vegas Monorail (at least 12), MBTA Mass Transit (16), NJ Transit commuter rail (3), I'm sure there are more that I can't think of right now
upcoming Amtrak: Pacific Surfliner (10000000000 more), Coast Starlight (1)
upcoming non-Amtrak: Coaster, Red Line/Expo Line in LA, NJ Transit (5-10)
Pretty good for a 16 year old
