Welcome to the June 2005 Photo Gallery!

There was a time when passenger stations and freight depots were present up and down the railroad line. Some were masonry and some were wood, some were large and some were small, some were ornate and some were utilitarian, but they were always a hub of activity on the line.

So, fellow Forum Members, lets share our favorite pictures of stations and depots, both model and prototype. If it is a picture of a model, remember to mention the manufacturer and any modifications that you have made to the model. Scratchbuilders and kitbashers, jump right in. Finally, if taking prototype photos is your passion, feel free to add them to the Gallery.

As always, please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page).

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

So, the next station will be...

This once was a passenger station on the Pittsburgh, Butler, Harmony and New Castle Railway. It's located in Wexford, PA and has been moved a few hundred yards from its original location. The P,B,H &N.C. was an interurban line.

In the early part of the 20th century, during the heyday of the interurban lines, a Pittsburgh newspaper reporter hopped from line to line all the way to Chicago. It took him two weeks and cost $14 in fares.

Hi,

my contribution to this month' gallery is the ATSF depot of Lamy,NM. The model is built from a styrene/resin kit. The manufacturer is "retro replicas" (which is me).

This is a photo of Union Station in St. Louis that I took last summer. It's now home to a number of shops and restaurants.

It looks like we are off to a great start! George, that wooden station is similar to many in the Northeast. Jens, that station sure does shout out "Southwest". Eric, can you imagine the wealth that the railroads had back when stations like that one were built?

Here is one I scanned a while back.

This is the Conrail Executive Train with an E-8 in the lead passing Chester, PA on the Northeast Corridor. The train is heading south. The picture was taken early in the morning on a cloudy day. From what I can remember the train left Philadelphia around 6:30 AM.

Here is the station I built as one of the challenge projects...



Nice pictures posted so far. I really like seeing stations like the one in St. Louis. I'm glad to see that some of these survived, unlike the old Penn Station in NYC.

Tom, when was your phot taken?
