No, this is NOT the “Falberg Depot” kit; this Thomas A. Yorke “Rocopila Depot” kit has been around much longer! (1976). The "Rocopila Depot" Kit has no specific prototype but the general construction techniques used for this model were inspired by a little station south of the border. Santa Eulalia was the end of the line for the Ferrocarril Mineral de Chicuahua, a narrow gauge industrial line. The station still stood (1976) along with #6; a Porter 2-8-0, "riding" the adjacent turntable.
This *original* Thomas A. Yorke New-Old-Stock (NOS) kit has been inventoried and all the parts are accounted for and complete. The windows, doors, and other details are Grandtline product molded plastic. Kit includes full-size drawings (SEE THUMBNAILS BELOW), scale lumber and detailed construction and weathering instructions.
