Train depot supporter Justin Sobeck

Justin Sobeck, a former Christopher resident who lives in Missouri, started a petition to ask the city of Murphysboro to reconsider its plans to try and demolish the former M&O train depot on Walnut Street.  Sobeck is pictured here with his son, Jackson, 2, whom he described as another train fanatic.
