CC&O Depot in Johnson City

This is looking back east from the end of the loading dock of the old CC&O depot. It almost looks like a passenger platform, but the Clinchfield had very little passenger service and this would have been for freight. Someone jump in here and correct me please. It had a long open platform area, then a long enclosed freight storage area, all connected to a large, 2-story, brick office building. Passengers had their own covered platform down at the brick office building.

This overhead structure would make a nice model if scratch-built. Probably lots of overheads were built like this. Note how the gutters from the roof are integrated into the post structure and empty into clay drain pipe.
