1. The Historic Steamboat Springs Depot. Colorado Tourism entry:
Built in 1909, the depot looks much the same as when it was a thriving stop along the DNWP Railway. The first floor includes a passenger section, waiting room, station office and baggage room. When service ended, the Depot was converted into a community arts center. (Submitted on September 9, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.) 

2. Steamboat Springs Depot. Wikipedia entry:
It was deemed "significant for its association with the old Denver, Northwestern & Pacific Railway, the so-called Moffat Road (now part of Rio Grande Industries), one of the major transportation links between Denver and Salt Lake City; for its fine architectural qualities; and because it embodies the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, and method of construction."
