GN 24'x24' Depot - N scale

During the late 1890's the Great Northern engineering staff developed a standard design 24 ft. square depot. This structure filled the need for a standardized design for use in Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Montana.

When the GN broached the Cascades heading towards Seattle, the standard designed depot quickly followed the westward expanding rail line. As railroad traffic grew, a telegrapher's window was added in place of the front window. The roof line was also extended. Most of the 24 ft. square depots were modified in such a manner.

When traffic required larger depots, some of the original 24 Ft. square buildings became secondary buildings for a station agent, or other uses. The standard depot with or without the telegrapher's window helped maintain the GN's image as a first class railroad.

A depot names sheet, instructions, and depot color chart are included in each depot kit. This feature is not included in any other GN model offered to date.
