The Jackson depot (P&M Division) is owned and
has been beautifully restored by the City of Jackson, Tenn.
The depot was built by the NC&StL in 1907, and is home to the
City of Jackson NC&StL Depot and Railroad Museum, and the Jackson

This depot is only a few miles from the Casey Jones Museum.
In early 2003, a tornado came through Jackson. While
the depot building remained standing, extensive water damage
occurred, and many artifacts were destroyed. The model railroad
layout sustained heavy damage.
NCPS received the following update 3/20/04:
Just wanted to let you know we have been back in
operation since September, including the layout. I am still
trying to build back a full roster of NC&StL, IC and GM&O
items, plus a general freight car pool (any road) so if anyone
has any items they want to donate it will be appreciated. We
also would like to have an NC&StL freight house, if someone
has one they want to part with.
Any donations can be sent to the Jackson Depot at the following
The N.C. &St. L. Depot
582 South Royal Street
Please mention NC&StL Preservation Society if you
donate any items. Thanks.
