Western Pacific Depot

The Western Pacific Depot was built starting in 1908.  It saw many a California Zephyr crossing its tracks, some of the early ones stopping in Livermore

The depot was used until August 31, 1951, and torn down in 1956.  It was located on the south side of the tracks, about half way between K and L.  There is now a muffler shop at the location.
