UPDATED! History vs. Wrecking Ball at Marysville

In its heyday, the old Union Pacific train depot in Marysville, Kan., was a showpiece -- beautiful and ornate. But after 85 years, the now vacant structure has fallen into disrepair. One local group hopes to save the depot from the wrecking ball and restore it to its former glory. Whether that can happen depends on what action the city council takes when it meets later tonight (MON). KPR's J. Schafer has more.
