The AT&SF passenger train waits on the depot siding. Four buildings in the background (starting at left) include a model of a 100-year-old church that is still used in Munden, Kansas; the 27 room lodge the author designed; Wall Drug Store, from Wall, South Dakota (slightly modified); the depot, modeled after the Williams depot by the Grand Canyon, built by the Santa Fe in the early 1900s.
