This has not been on a layout.
This handsome depot is perfect for any small town along your railroad.
Its classic American design fits popular modeling eras and is typical of similar structures used by railroads across the country.
Back when the depot was an indicator of a community's success, railroads built large, elaborate stations at more important towns. These were bigger cities that generated a lot of freight and passenger business for the line. Others, such as the county seat, were of local importance. And in some, competition from other railroads led to the building of a bigger and better station facility.
A Great Station for any Railroad
*Whitehall, Wisconsin, Prototype
*Similar to Small Town Stations Across U.S.
*Fits 1900s to Present
*Authentic "Brick" Exterior
*Covered Platforms on Two Sides
*Attractive Curved Windows and Gabled Roof
Typical of depots built in the years just prior to 1920, the 1914-built Whitehall Station was located on the Green Bay & Western Railroad in Wisconsin. The prototype was built to replace an earlier wooden structure. Whitehall was built as a combination depot; inside its Flemish Bond brick walls it housed a central ticket counter and operator's bay, separate men's and women's waiting rooms and a freight room. Large arched windows let in plenty of light and an angled operator's bay afforded the agent/operator a good view down the tracks. A long canopy extending along the platform on both ends kept passengers sheltered while boarding. The freight room handled parcels.
The depot served travelers until 1949, but remained an active freight agency until 1963. The City of Whitehall purchased the depot in 2003 and restored it as a small museum. The structure remains in its original location along the former GB&W mainline, in 2006 owned by Canadian National. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
This Cornerstone Series kit will look great serving trains with Walthers streamlined or heavyweight cars. Parts come molded in appropriate colors; the prototype was built from red brick. For setting your scene, the freight doors can be positioned open or closed so you can add a baggage cart or cargo being transferred between the freight room and the platform.
Railroads went to great lengths to provide important towns with a proper depot that projected a positive image of the community and their company. Larger and busier towns, or those served by more than one railroad, typically received fancier structures with more elaborate trim and attention to detail. While most were built of wood, brick was sometimes chosen for its appearance, durability and the image of strength it projected.
This model is a unique addition to any small town. It captures all the fine detail of the prototype and fits easily on any steam- or diesel-era layout.
