Three blueprints, 18 x 24" made for the Western Pacific Railway of a standard 20 x 32' Desert Depot. This standard plan was to be made for the stops between San Francisco and Salt Lake, thus the Nevada desert. These three blueprints include side views, plain view, details of footings, overall foundation construction and details of prominent structural support. Of interest is the layout of the office itself which had a telegraph office at front and center, conductors room at the right front of the building, three bedrooms and a kitchen. Extremely rare and very important as this is the blueprint for all of the small depot houses along the Western Pacific in the Nevada desert. Edge issues, please see photograph online.
