Further Models and Scenes and an Animation of the Old Santa Fe Passenger Depot in Winfield, KS
3D Model of Santa Fe Passenger Depot
This is the working model. Latest version 4/9/97. Roof lines adjusted. Trim paint changed to light green which is the way I remember it in 1957-1960 or so. The roof is greyed out maybe too much. Jim Davis had taken a picture of the old foundation, which is still in place, so that I can get a realistic background. Maybe we can get one with a modern train going by?

This is the view of the old Santa Fe Passenger Depot Site, looking east from the levee, south of 14th Street.
This is the sign telling passengers (if there were any) that they are, indeed, in Winfield. The fenced storage area in the background is the site of the old foundation.
A little further back toward 14th Street.
A current day train passing the old site.
No passengers in sight at this site. Note the old brick paving, under the asphault in the driveway.
