Many small towns have one building that stands out as a great photo prop. Until recently when the roof collapsed into Fulton Feed Company and it was demolished,  it was perhaps Canal Fulton’s most interesting railfan landmark.

Located along the RJ Corman tracks, an afternoon running RJC or Ohio Central train could use this as a backdrop. In the top image Fulton Feed Company stands alone and almost begs to be modeled for a model railroad.

The bottom image shows OHCR 3253 heading south on the RJ Corman track through Canal Fulton. Both photos are from Sept. 9, 2004. Now the Fulton Feed Company and the Ohio Central’s afternoon Warwick train are only memories.
