Thurmond, once a busy railroad town of about 200-300 people, is now a preserved ghost town run by the national park service. The railroad station is a stop on the Amtrak line between Chicago and New York City.
Here's a photo of what the station looked like a long time ago (don't know the date): www.wvepostcards.com/postcards/?picture=/pimages/p7316.jpg
