A Bit of Afton History

A man I don't know named Rodney Dillinger posted a few pictures of old Afton on our Afton Facebook page.  I found three among them that I don't already have.  I hope Mr. Dillinger doesn't mind that I post them here.  The quality isn't good, but they're just so interesting.
   The "other" D-X station on Route 66 south of town  
 Yes, little Afton once had a hospital.  It's now a mental health clinic.
And this is the interior of the railroad roundhouse.  I'm so glad to have finally found a photo of this.  It was a very important part of Afton's history, as it employed a great number of people.

Yes, Susan. It is called the Afton OK Group. You should join!
