    Does anyone know of a floor plan/ elevation drawing for the Cuba depot? I would like to bash one in large scale, and a bit more than the photos could go a long way to get it closer.

    I raided this PDF from the Springfield, Missouri, library site...

    Don (frisco1522), in his modesty, didn't include a photo of his beautiful HO Cuba depot.

    That's because I don't have it any more. I sold it about ten years ago.

    I remember it sitting in the case at Tinkertown.

    Sure do miss Tinkertown!

    'Fraid that I missed seeing the depot, but I do remember seeing one of Don's locomotives on display. Stumbled across Tinkertown while taking the long way to dinner at Schneithorst's. That's the day that I swore off diesels.

    Just like I remember it, old Brown the agent used to say " Cuba " in a voice that everyone could remember. He had a divider and door where you had to get what you wanted in the waiting room. No walking into his space, to look at the orders he ran it like the old days.
  12. [​IMG]Pic labeled: Bird's eye view of Cuba MO, with depot half shown on the right.
    Town is quite small, the railroad was in its early years. The curve to the SW may have been just to local customers 1859 - 1873 before the 1873 St. Louis Salem & Little Rock (Salem-Branch).
    It could have been after 1873.

    Picture is of Cuba Depot. The train arriving from the curve is from the Salem- Branch SLSF.

    Attached are:
