The "new" Las Vegas station, one of my favorites and one of only three in North America that I have personally observed built in the "Streamlined Moderne" style of architecture. The other two, Salida, Colorado on the Rio Grande and Prince, West Virginia on the C&O were in unlikely locales. Only the Prince station still stands. It was a shame from both a railfan and architectural stand point that the Las Vegas depot was torn down. Don't know of any others, but there may have been some. All three of these depots were built in the "40's.
