See yesterday's Picture of the Day  
The Frisco depot presents an exceptional historical treasure: the extant counter-type Harvey House Restaurant and Harvey Girls dormitory on the second floor. These are found in the near corner of the 2-story portion (4 sash window grouping). Also, the former Harvey House News Stand (embellished with its red-tile roof and Greek-style pediment) is prominently displayed. Seen on June 7, 2013 the depot's trackside - a rectangular solid block of dark red brick - expresses power and stability. Appearing somewhat austure, the west-facing receding and projecting zones read like a modern strip office building. At 229 feet total length, the 2-story portion is 166' long. , the center is flanked by 32' x 42' wings. The recessed central portion is protected by the pent roof with red tiles and fanciful brackets. (Shame the ugly A/C and satellite dish could have been put on the roof) The wing at the near end housed the baggage area, which has been repurposed into a modern sit-down restaurant.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Denver Rails is a website dedicated to capturing images of the railroads of Denver and the West. Whenever I travel I try to grab a snapshot of some of the vanishing traces of the railroad history. This site was created for displaying my collection.

In addition, I have compiled a database of railroad things to ride, see, and visit throughout the U.S. I hope it will be a tool for planning vacations, finding attractions and making memories. I don't charge anything for listings on my site so if you note something missing please let me know or submit the information yourself. Instructions are on the database main page.

Browse around and let me know what you think. Corrections and suggestions are always welcome.
