Union Pacific's one-time depot, North Platte, Nebraska

Roadside and trackside views of the depot built in the golden days of passenger train travel. After passenger traffic ceased through here in 1971, Union Pacific had no further use for the building and demolished it in 1973.

It is one of the buildings that must have influenced the architects of the former Auckland Railway Station in Beach Road which was opened in 1930 and closed with the opening of the Britomart Transport Centre in 2003, see earlier post.
