You can see what appears to be examples of both buildings in the background of the photo of the Garos wye in DSP&P Pictorial-Chapter IX(p299 in the original).Cliff Mestel of ClassicMiniatures/BK has/will have a model of the one-story in HO.

Well, how handy. Would the first drawing be the plan used for the Leadville section house located just north of the depot?

That's the one. Thank you,  Chris.  Sad to see it is not the standard,  b u t it will be a modelling challenge.

So, Chris, do you think this was a rolled roofing material, or a liquified rubber substance that was painted on with mineral grit added to the mixture (like later used on metal freight car roofs)??

The phrase "easy to lay" suggests a rolled material, but I cannot make out seams in the photo. For modeling purposes, would one use a single sheet of 400 grit black sandpaper or strips?

As you surmise,  Jim, I think the latter.

   Elaterite-

     Based on their own ad, I would say roll roofing. While trying to figure what the enginehouse may have been roofed with, Elaterite came up as a possibilty, if perhaps a replacement of earlier treatments.
