Here in the Northeast this morning, the station master has piled all the freight inside the station, out of the rain, snow and wind.

I'm a great fan of tinplate lithography and this charming little IVES #200 Freight Station is another great example of prewar tinplate litho. My research indicates that IVES assigned the catalog #200 to two different accessories, this freight station, as well as the massive #200 power house, another heavily lithographed accessory. This would make a good tinplate trains trivia quiz question!
