Cass Gilbert NP Depots - North Yakima
  
The North Yakima Depot carries to an extreme the notion of using the center portion of the building as a decorative element. The half-timbered design differs from the Little Falls Depot in that it seems to be German- or central European-inspired (the English did not build wood towers). The large chimney is for a fireplace in the waiting room, a common feature in depots of the era. The chimney does not reflect the Germanic influence of the depot's otherwise unified design. The depot was enlarged within a few years of its construction and was later replaced.

Train Number Summary
  
This is a composite list of scheduled NP passenger and freight trains. The passenger trains operated by the NP in 1930 were compiled by John F. Strauss, Jr. and the freight train data comes from the NP Train Brief book issued June 23, 1969. Train numbers changed very little from the start of passenger service, but trains were added and removed from service from time to time. However, the Seattle to Portland mainline direction changed from west to east in 1932, changing affected train numbers.
