by Thomas A. Yorke Enterprises/Scale Model Masterpieces HO/HOn3/HOn2/HOn30
Waitin' on the 5:05 A shrill whistle breaks the stillness of the evening air. Soon the little engine with a single combine in tow will round the curve and pull up to the tiny depot. The 5:05 is right on time. Originally, Thomas A. Yorke called this station the Rocopilla Depot. The original Rocopilla Depot kit had no specific prototype, but the basic 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 original patterns for the HO version are from the original Fallberg Station by John Olsen. The O scale patterns were carved by Tom Yorke to match..
