Captured this photo on my drive home from picking apples. This is one of my favorite scenes in Southern Illinois. The depot once served the Gulf Mobile & Ohio Railroad (GM&O) at Sparta, Illinois. It was also used in the movie, “In The Heat of the Night” with Rod Steiger and Sidney Poitier. It is now an art museum. Not sure about the caboose’s history, but I do like the GM&O logo painted on it. One of these days I am going to paint this scene en plein air!
