SP/WP depot at Westwood CA?
Author: timz

The Barriger collection at flickr.com recently
added a pic of the depot at Westwood
(33255067326). Presumably the pictured
building was built before WP arrived there?
But for all we know the pic was taken after
SP left town?

Is the bldg that's there now the same bldg,
heavily remodeled? 40.30176N 120.99953W

I believe the building that is there now was built from scratch.

This is the 'replica' depot at Westwood. When I shot this in 2007 it was the Lassen County Visitor's Bureau. I don't know when it was built but it must have been in 2006/2007 as they were still working on the interior when I took this shot. It is on 3rd Street but I do not know if it is still a visitor's center or has been repurposed.

Here are a pair of photos I took of the Westwood station back in August 1971, shortly before the depot was torn down.  Looks a little different, as the original had a much steeper pitch to the roof.

I do need to rescan these slides on my newer scanner for a better image, but these were handy, so here they are!

Here is a rescan of one I posted in August of 2016 of the Westwood depot. Photo dates from 3-1966.

Don t forget that there was a Company building retro depots using town grant money a few years ago. Roseville would one example, Healdsburg or Windsor would be another example. May even be in the TO archives.
