Road Name History:
Railroad structures include but are not limited to stations, depots, yard offices, interlocking towers and tanks. A train station, railway station, railroad station, or depot is a railway facility where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers or freight.

It generally consists of at least one track-side platform and a station building (depot) providing such ancillary services as ticket sales and waiting rooms. If a station is on a single-track line, it often has a passing loop to facilitate traffic movements. The smallest stations are most often referred to as "stops" or, in some parts of the world, as "halts" (flag stops). Stations may be at ground level, underground, or elevated. Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other transport modes such as buses, trams or other rapid transit systems.

From Wikipedia

Brand/Importer Information:
POLA was founded in 1957 by Horst Pollak providing HO and then later N scale European building kits. In the 1980's POLA was one of the first manufacturers to make buildings in G Scale and then dominated that market with its extensive line of quality heavy-duty weatherproof building kits. Faller then bought POLA in 1997. The POLA G buildings are being continued by Faller under the "POLA-G" name, while the other HO and N scale buildings will be marketed under the Faller brand name. Some of the buildings are also still sold under the Piko brand name.
Most of the kits have sold over several decades, hence can be found it at least three (3) types of different Pola packaging, reflecting their production period.

Pola structures were distributed and rebranded in North America by Atlas and Model Power, among others.
