Local residents noticed construction at the old railroad depot in Brookfield in recent weeks. A call to the BNSF media offices confirmed what many locals have been hoping for, a new depot in Brookfield is indeed being constructed. The top photo is the site as it was seen early this morning, while the second photo is a concept drawing of the new facility. BNSF, through a representative, noted that they hope to have the new, larger, facility complete by the end of the summer.
