Modeling the N.Y.S.& W. Passenger Station

Sussex, New Jersey

"By the way, your drawings are fantastic, a blind man could build the depot by your plans." -Don Spiro

The dimensions in these drawings are based upon photographs, minor speculation and the footprint dimension as published in the Sussex Independent in 1872 when the station was built.

I drew up these plans as a favor to a friend, Don Spiro, but it has served as a good precursor to finishing my Newton DL&W Depot plans as both stations had a full portico. Any feedback should be sent to me here.

If you ever had opportunity to be INSIDE this station, I'd love to attempt a floor plan.
