Railroad train without any cars

In the early 80s, the trains had long since quit coming through one line in Grandview, and the lovely old station was destined to be removed. An orthopedist purchased it and moved it to Sunnyside for his office. You can just barely notice a mock train track in the sidewalk around the building. *
The tracks of that particular line have been removed and part of the right of way is now a section of the Lower Valley Pathway.

That's a wonderful structure. It's so nice to see buildings preserved and the track in the concrete is a nice touch!

I think that is so cool that the Dr. saved the train depot for his office and paid to have it moved to another location! The train tracks in the sidewalk are a neat touch!

Good for heritage savers! Did he have a plaque somewhere that said it was an old railroad station? Is it on the national register?
