The depot has been completely repainted inside and outside. The orange and maroon colors are gone; no one could figure out where those colors actually came from. The depot's exterior is currently white and dark grey (from the 1930s - but on its way to the more familiar grey on grey of the 1960s) and the interior is the standard cream green. Inside, the depot features the original, for example, telephone exchange and station hand carts.
