Note that the model, although gorgeous, is not 100% correct as the actual depot is not symmetric.

Compare the west (track) side of the model here:
https://www.custommodelrailroads.com/images/gallery/UnionStation/unionstn21000.jpg
to the photo of the west side of the depot here:
https://denverurbanism.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/2016-06-01_bftp_union-station_0.jpg

The model has 9 second story windows in each segment of both the north and south wings, but the depot has 8 windows in both north wing segements, 9 in the near south wing segment, and 10 in the far south segment. The doors are also the same in all four model segments. It looks like they made a master for a 9-window segment and used castings for all 4 segments. Also, the dormers are missing from both near segments.
