Anyone have a source of architectural plans for the Palmer, Mass. train station?  Thanks for any help.

Is that the Union Station in Palmer?  No, I don't have the plans - just curious.

You could try asking the Steaming Tender, the restaurant that's in the building. The owners are the ones who did the restoration on the building and its a very train themed place. I feel that if they don't have plans they might at least be able to point you in the right direction. They've gone so far as to get an 0-6-0 and a passenger car for the parking lot.

A beautiful piece of architecture. Between H. H. Richardson and Frederick Law Olmstead, I figured there had to be some plans around.
Hope this is a good start, and good luck building it!

Interestign that men's spacious bathroom area is called "Smoking Room". Women were not allowed to smoke?

Not in public, at one time.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

I guess that likely explains this ad campaign.
