A Classic Brick Depot for Steam- and Diesel-Era Railroads
* Unique Brick Design
* Authentic Design & Detail
* Rock Island Prototype
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. Such was the case with the Rock Island depot at Pella, Iowa.
This distinctive design featured brick construction, leaded glass door
transoms and a bell roof with flowing lines that gave the structure its
unique identity. Today, the structure is on the National Register of
Historic Places and houses a museum.
Like the prototype, this model is a unique addition to any small town. The
kit captures all the fine detail of the prototype and fits easily on any
steam- or diesel-era layout.
