I have visited a lot of train stations around Michigan and I have to admit the depot in Niles is one of my favorites. The station building was constructed by the Michigan Central in 1892 to a design by architects Spier and Rohns. Niles station was used as a filming location for Continental Divide, Midnight Run, and Only the Lonely, the latter of which spawned an annual tradition of adding Christmas lights and decorations around the station. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places
Now I need to get back to the southwest corner of the state so I can see the station lit up in Christmas lights.
