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

    Standard Plan 1:
    Standard Plan 2:
    Standard Plan 3:
    Standard Plan 4:

    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. )

    The other yard offices on the system that I have seen, including the one at the North Yard in Springfield and the one at Monett, appear to be of similar design.

    Although they are different enough that I think they came from another set of plans.


    Edit 1/23/2024: Added current links to the 1958 and 1959 standard depot plans.

    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.


    (klrwhizkid 1/26/24) they can be found here:

    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.

    Did the set of January 5, 1967 standard plans for "Standard Portable Buildings" ever get posted?

    I have not been able to locate them on this site.

    Hope this helps.
