La Plata, MO depot

The La Plata (pronounced /lah-PLATE-ah/) depot began life as a fairly standard frame depot with a large, interlocking-style bay window. The depot was rebuilt with asbestos siding and considerably remodeled in 1945 following a fire. The final depot at Purcell, OK was similar in overall style. The depot continued to serve as a stop for Amtrak, but by the early 1990's, when this photo was taken, the building had fallen into disrepair. In 1996, the NEMO Model Railroad Club and the Friends for La Plata Preservation began a restoration of the structure, which was competed in December 2001.
