    John has posted scans of 4 different 1958 Frisco station standard plans.

    Standard Plan 1: http://www.frisco.org/vb/showthread.php?t=3797
    Standard Plan 2: http://www.frisco.org/vb/showthread.php?t=3798
    Standard Plan 3: http://www.frisco.org/vb/showthread.php?t=3799
    Standard Plan 4: http://www.frisco.org/vb/showthread.php?t=3800

    Does anybody know of examples on the system where any of these were built?

    As nearly as I can tell, the current Depot/Yard Office at Cuba appears to be similar to plans 3 and 4. (for reference, this depot can bee seen here: http://www.missouridepots.com/cuba.htm )

    Other The yard offices on the system that I have seen (e.g. the one at the North Yard in Springfield and the one at Monett ) appear to be of similar design though they are different enough that I think they came from another set of plans.....

    Paul,

    There is also a set of Jan 5, 1967 standard plans for "Standard Portable Buildings". They are similar to the 1958 Standard Plans, but they are no longer called "depots" They are designed to be modular, and as the moniker implies sufficiently portable to be trucked to the desired location. The standard plans even include drawings, which describe how to "move the buildings cross country -intact". Will post these during the next few days.

    I think I have a partial set of those, but what I have is a mediocre photo copy of the original documents. I look forward to seeing a full set when you have time.

    Thanks,

    Paul
