V & T / C & C common combination depots

Post by Curtis Reid » Thu Oct 13, 2016 10:29 am

The V & T and C & C had a number of combination depots with lengths from 40-50 feet. I've been puttering around with the V & T Franktown depot for a couple years now, and just started the 2nd MoundHouse (V & T) / Dayton (C & C) depot. Here's the Dayton depot (ca 1880's) so far:

One question I have is: Photos of the passenger end of the Dayton depot show a window above the overhang. The existing depot has a window underneath the overhang. Did these depots have two smaller windows; one above and one below the overhang?

Photos clearly show the window above the roof overhang (missing on today's depot) The current window shown in the photo seems to be original, and if so, two, both of which would both open into the upper story.

A 1914 (post SP, post standard gauge, and as a result with roof cut back) photo... from the Dayton Museum... showing the upper window on what I believe is the current north end

And a photo of the interior of the second story, showing where the floor is in relation to the roof overhang.

Thanks Randy. I was leaning toward keeping both windows, but it seemed a little odd. Thank you for the confirmation!

The Franktown depot had an upper window as shown in your photo. The depot was built without the roof overhang and had upper windows per photos and 1916 Valuation sketches.
