The Katy Restaurant
Author: gcm

April 88
The Katy Restaurant was along the MKT (the railroad just in back of it) a short distance SE of Smithville,Tx.
I never had a chance to try the food and not sure if it was still open when I took this.
Looking at a 2019 Google photo, the building and boxcars were still there.

Thanks for sharing.  I would suppose it was the former Katy Depot?

I'm not sure if the building was a station or not.
Whatever it was it was probably moved here.
The old long gone station in Smithville was a large one.
