Bancroft Station – Ticket Taker’s Office

Bancroft Station
Ticket Taker’s Office

The depot was originally located in Bancroft, Wisconsin on the Wisconsin Central Railway.  It was built in 1898 and later became part of the Soo Line.  Bancroft was an important stop on the “P Line”, the Soo Line’s branch extension from Portage to Point (Stevens Point).

The exterior of the building and the 1st floor have been restored to its 1920’s look by the Central Wisconsin Model Railroaders, LTD.  This is the only remaining example of the 6 depots built in this style.  This image of the ticket taker’s office was obtained looking through an exterior window.

Image capture was attained using a Canon 5D Mark II 21 megapixel digital  camera. Resolution was enhanced with a tripod and use of a built in timer that minimized camera shake.  Several images of differing exposures were combined to produce the final product.
