Barstow Station has undergone three iterations during its time. A few of the looks is shown here.

Before Barstow station was built, the first McDonalds building was where the currant parking lot is now and the railroad cars were the front with parking spaces where the drive in area is now. They used to cook the food in the old McDonalds and had "runners" hired that took the food to the first Barstow station.
