Even a kitbashed Bing would have more ornamentation than this station - here's two examples of Bing - the first from 1912 and the second from ca. 1928.





  Based on my references the 1928 station was cataloged from 1912 to 1928 - in the earlier catalogs is was listed as #7063 and in the later catalogs as 10/618  - to the best of my knowledge what changed over time was the complexity of the paint scheme.  The earlier stations had more gradations of colors applied to the exterior whereas the later versions were simplified.
