Where Bobcats Used to Board in Athens

With Ohio University winning a thriller over the University of Virginia in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Saturday night, I had to look through photos from our trip to Athens in July 2018 to visit our niece Hannah, who was attending the OU medical program.

She has since graduated and our nephew Justin is now studying at OU.

Here is the Baltimore & Ohio station in private use adjacent to the campus.

The last Amtrak train to stop here was the Cincinnati-Washington Shenandoah, which was discontinued in 1981.

Eventually CSX abandoned the route and the tracks are gone but evidence can still be found highlighted by the station.

As for the OU men’s basketball team, the Bobcats lost on Monday night to Creighton University, thus ending their magical season.
