In many smaller towns the local railroad station served not just as a train station, but also as the local public telegraph office. This happened when there was insufficient telegraph business to financially support the viability of a stand alone telegraph office. Some early railroads (B & O was one) ran their own telegraph business for the public. Other railroads had various contract arrangements with telegraph companies (typically Western Union), for interconnection of circuits, the use of rights of way, and also providing public telegraph services at railroad stations.

This model (B439) includes a phone booth and telegraph office to go close by a railroad or train station. You simply make the model after downloading and gluing together the various parts (which you glue on some old cardboard).
