The Depot and garden, Summer 2006.  Yes, that is a REAL MKT signal !
Looking thru the Katy Standard Plan Book, the #2 plan, a 20'x40' depot was agreed upon.   Protoypical for Missouri and Kansas, we chose this plan, rather than the prototypically correct #9 plan, the standard station for Texas and Oklahoma, a revision for the south of the #2 plan.  We chose not to build a "Jim Crow" depot, leaving those days of short-sidedness in the past.   The only modifications to the original plans were 1)increase the operator space from 4'x8' to 4'x10'   2)change the roof framing structure necessary to remove all load bearing walls and have nothing but open space inside,   3)reduce the pitch of the roof to 4/12, and wall height down to 8' to blend in with the houses in the neighborhood.
