*****Excerpted from Wikipedia.*****
On February 14, 2013, work began on a new $1.2 million station building, which replaced the 1962 era depot. The new station, which was designed in the Craftsman-style to better blend with the city's architecture, includes an improved lobby, artwork and larger restrooms. The new depot was primarily funded through a grant from the Federal Transit Administration’s Bus & Bus Facilities program, which was matched with more funding from the city.
In addition to Amtrak, Winter Park station serves as a stop on the SunRail commuter rail system. Operations began on May 1, 2014. Unlike most SunRail stations, which feature canopies consisting of white aluminum poles supporting sloped green roofs, Winter Park's canopies have traditional white gabled roofs. It also includes ticket vending machines, ticket validators, emergency call boxes, drinking fountains.

_____Note: This model is not exact scale. It was drawn with the help of some measurements of some of the columns and windows along with some excellent photographs by an interested party. The scale of many of the details are also out of proportion. This and other considerations were necessary to enable a viable 3d print and so that the model would hold up to the vigorous post processing routines by Shapeways.
