goods depots for model trains scale sizes

On real life-size railroads, the switching yard is a set of track sidings where the cars and wagons get unloaded or loaded. A lot of engine shunting goes on as trains get moved around and wagons get added and deleted. On model train layouts a switching yard or siding is sometimes near a passenger train station, but in larger towns there might be a separate goods station or freight depot. Inward and outbound mail traffic might traditionally have been handled within (or nearby) the train station.

Depending on your country of location, the building was probably called a goods shed, or freight depot. This model (B440) is a scaled-down replica of what a typical freight depot might look like. You'll notice it has large doors, and is open at both ends, it includes a loading/unloading platform, and even features a little office. Look closely and you'll also notice it is weathered to indicate age.
