If you go all the way to the end of 5th street in Alma, Nebraska, you’ll see a unique little building right on the edge of town. It stands alone on its plot of land, separated from the street by a gravel parking lot. The sign out front indicates that it’s a restaurant called The Station.
The little building really was the train station in Roseland, Nebraska years ago. It served the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. In the 1970s it was moved to Alma, where it was used as an antique store for a while before being converted into a restaurant.
Although freight trains still run by the town, the station was no longer needed...and it was turned into something even better. The Station still retains the charm of a rural train station, along with lots of railroad and sports memorabilia on the walls.
