might like to have a copy (yes indeed, I would...thank you, Nina).  This is
the waiting area for the Seaboard Train that went through Borden Springs.
My mother was a post master there and back in the 1950s as children we
would go down there and watch my mother hang the mail sack on a tall
pole....the train man used a long hook to snatch the mail bag off the pole
and the train never stopped...just kept on going.  My sister and I played
inside the building as kids but I don't ever remember during our
childhood...of the train stopping to pick up passengers.......the buildings
must have been used in the earlier years when visitors were coming and
going to the Borden-Wheeler Hotel, and the train stopped in Borden
Springs."
