Southern Pacific Common Standard #23 Depot in LEGO

October 1, 2008

The exceptionally restored and modernized Southern Pacific Common Standard Depot #23 located in Centerville, Calif. was re-created in LEGO’s at the BayAreaLUG modular layout. I approached the builder and complimented on the excellent, prototypical work he had done, which he appreciated. Being one to play with LEGOs from time to time, I can only imagine how expensive all of those specialized bricks were, such as the green roofing material and all of those minifigures.
