Community retells train related tales

By Staff | Sep 17, 2010

SHEPHERDSTOWN – From a child’s church offering coins that never quite made it into the collection plate to the fight to save the station from the wrecking ball, precious stories of Shepherdstown’s beloved train station were told and captured on film Sept. 10, at the Station.

Kevin Williams of the Shepherd University Communication Department and some of his students arrived bright and early to make it all happen.

Some of Shepherdstown’s lifelong residents talked about the Station and how it affected their lives in ways both large and small.

The video interviews will be shared with the public at the celebration of the Station’s 100th birthday from noon to 6 p.m. Oct. 16.

Residents and guests won’t want to miss these stories of bygone days when childhood lasted longer and the pace was slower.
