Rutland's - Vergennes, Vt. Station

As the station looked March 2012.
 A Station on the Move
If you have been following the posts on Yahoo regarding the VTS you would have noted that the Vergennes, Vt. ex-Rutland Ry. station had been moved a short distance (about 500 yards) to the Ferrisburgh park & ride lot. The idea is to refurbish the 50'x20' structure. The station is currently sitting on its new foundation and waiting siding. The work is being performed by Mill Brook Constructuion.

 I stopped by the station during March of 2012 and took the following photos. If you want to model a weather beaten structure, take a good look at the siding. A link to the stations move is found below enjoy...George Dutka

  1. George, Excellent pics! I do have a question for you, about the freight station that was at Proctor, VT. Do you happen to know what colors it would have been painted? The family lived just up the hill from it for well over 100 years, but I never thought to ask anyone about the colors, and now they are all gone, just like the station... -Eric
