I recently saw a Muir Models St. Albans Station on Ebay. Unfortunately, it slipped away from me. No big deal.

Anyhow, I went looking for some information on it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Albans_station_(LIRR)

I'm trying to locate photos of it but not having much luck. Anyone know where I might find some?

The station I am referring to was built in 1898 and torn down in 1935.

Since your avatar is of the Rutland Railroad I'm assuming you are looking for the St. Albans Station in Vermont and not on Long Island in New York?

A quick search on E-bay brought up many post card pictures of the St. Albans station.

There are two pictures in the book "Green Mountain Rails - Vermont's Colorful Trains by Robert Willoughby Jones.

Check your PM in a few minuets.

My apologies for not being clear enough. I realized people were going to make the assumption of St. Albans, Vermont after I posted.

I am actually referring to the St. Albans Station on the Long Island Railroad in New York. I did find where it was called Locust Avenue, which provided a few more clues. Sorta.

There are a few photos I've found out there, but if my eyes are correct, they are of Springfield Gardens.

Here is the link to the Muir station kit on Ebay-

There is also a thread on a very similar station called "Larena's Railroad Hotel" http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=50333
