Change have been made.
The city has stepped up and made some significant changes to depot operations. They have invested time and money in getting the inside to look brighter and more useful. While CNR has lost one train layout, there are now new large round brown tables and chairs to match so that the setting is more appealing for meetings. The station masters office is now protected by a "glass wall" and the gift store is where the depot office was. That makes it more accessible for customers to fondle the merchandise which only increases sales.
There are few other changes that all add to the depots useability for the public. Anyone can arrange to use it by contacting the city offices in the municipal building or calling 989 224-8944.
CNR still has Sunday openings from 1 to 3pm with the rail cars on display as restoration permits.
