The Greensboro Depot Museum stands near the crossing, the last surviving depot along the AN.

 

Just inside the depot are a pair of US&S Teardrop bells on display, which I believe came from the FGAR's Tallahassee Subdivison!

The one on the left in Picture 30 is a 3rd Generation Teardrop, while the one on the right is a 2nd Generation Teardrop.
