This was the former Great Northwestern Depot in Casper, Wyoming. The depot today serves as an office building, with the nearby rails having previously been featured here in the form of a rails to trails project that now runs through the center of Casper. I don't know the vintage of the depot.

This very classic city train station in Salt Lake City was built in 1910. A beautiful structure, it now houses Utah's state historical offices, the Utah History Center and the Rio Grande Cafe.
The station is probably also emblematic, in some ways, of the decline in passenger rail service. Only a few blocks off of downtown, the neighborhood can be a rough one at certain times of the day and the presence of police cars in these photographs isn't accidental, a there is a City of Salt Lake police station very near by. Early in the morning large crowds of the homeless gather as a Catholic relief mission just across the street.
