Description 1936 Ford V8 toy car to go with train depot 2012.08.001-.002

The June 29, 1911 Anacortes American reported on the Great Northern Depot's opening, at 611 R Avenue: "New Great Northern Depot Opened; Is a Credit to City." In 1964, excursion trains brought visitors to the Arts and Crafts Festival (now known as the Anacortes Art Festival) from Seattle. This brick building served until regular rail traffic to Anacortes ended in 1978. The depot now serves as the Depot Arts Center.

This HO scale model (3.5 mm (0.1378 in) represents 1 real foot (304.8 mm); this ratio works out to about 1:87.1) was used with depot model made (2012.087.001-.002) by Mr. Carroll Francis Stromberg and donated to the Anacortes Museum by his wife, Carol Stromberg, after his death in 2012.
