B&O depot moved to Nunda?

Not affiliated with this auction. I believe they are saying this is a small B&O depot/shelter that was moved to Nunda. Anyone know anything about this?

Ha! When I first quickly read your post I thought the actual shelter was being auctioned off. Then i clicked wondering if I had a spot for it in my backyard (and what my wife would say), but it was just a slide. JS

More than likely, its a small office/shed used by one of the oil or coal dealers which were served by the PRR stub which went into Nunda from the Rochester Branch or it could be a small building used by the PRR itself. Without seeing more of the background, its hard to put it in context or tell if it is actually Nunda. The person taking the slide could have been confused over their location or the history of railroads in the area. The structure looks like it has been in place for awhile. Moving a building from the nearest B&O trackage over the hills to Nunda would have been a considerable effort.

Pretty small building. It's like the size of Chase on the BR&P.
