Blair Line - Leeton, MO Depot (Rock Island)

Leeton, MO Depot (Rock Island) Kit # 188

The pagoda style or flared roof eaves along with the bay window on the front make this a unique, but very attractive station. This style of roof was an inexpensive way to add interest to an otherwise common structure and was used by the Rock Island and several other railroads. At 24' wide x 40' long this is a small size wood combination passenger and freight station. The prototype originally included a loading ramp that was removed in the depot's later days. Our kit includes the ramp and may be built with or without it. The prototype had exterior walls of lap siding with a wainscot of novelty siding. Although this structure is based on a Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific (Rock Island) Standard Depot design this style of structure was also found on other railroads. These roads include the Gulf Coast Lines, Frisco, and Chicago & Eastern Illinois. The four lines mentioned, all shared the same standards before the 1913 breakup of the Yoakum railroad empire.The actual prototype for this model was located in Leeton, Missouri.

Kit features laser-cut floor, sub-roof, interior and exterior walls with tab and slot connections. Also includes laser-cut peel-n-stick doors, windows, window glazing and roofing for easy assembly. Peel-n-stick trim comes in one piece for each side of the structure and the bay windows making for a fast and precise application of all the detailed trim work. Laser-cut wood loading ramp included. Also includes signs and cast metal chimney.

HO scale kit dimensions: (structure) 3.30" x 5.50", (ramp) 1.00" x 3.25".
