Well thanks, Uncle Joe! It's always good to see a depot posted on a Friday...

Almost looks like something you would see on the Santa Fe in Southern California. Same design elements.

That's what the Railroad Station Historical Society database says, but I've having a hard time reconciling the building at that spot with the one in the photo above:

More like something you would see on Rock Island in Kansas:

Ist picture,
looking SW on ex ACL toward Tampa.
The exSAL crossed about a mile away
The SAL depot was located there as
shown.
3rd picture
Looking NE toward Orlando.

The current "depot" is the same  location  
where the ACL wood depot stood.
 About 1925 or so the SAL extended  the
line from Wildwood to West Palm Beach.
Most if not all of the depots were masonary
construction and had a  Spainish style
look.
On the oher hand the ACL was much older and
had (at some) wood depots.
As an exception the Orlando station was all
masonary.
I know the depot shown does look like its self.
Many changes were made.
Of note,ACL station signs were purple and white
and show the city only.The SAL signs were white
with black letters and showed the state as well.
