Johnny Cash: Souvenirs, Novelties, Party Tricks

From the Chicago Tribune:

If Johnny Cash were still alive, he might write a song about the plight of the old train depot he bought more than 25 years ago. The Amqui Station along the Louisville & Nashville Railroad tracks in Madison was vacant and close to demolition when Cash bought it in 1979 and moved it a few miles northeast to his property in Hendersonville.

After the singer's death in 2003, Halo Properties purchased the depot and is now donating it back to Madison, where community leaders want to use it as a museum and possibly as part of a planned commuter rail system for Nashville and its suburbs.
Is anyone else thinking of the sight gag from "Top Secret!" where it appears that the train is moving but it is actually the station that is moving?
