Random wip....

Guess the location? There are some anachronistic elements, though - some 1920's elements along with some from the 1870's.

That's it!

I'm just guessing on the location of the freight depot - it was only there from Oct 1871 to Oct 1872, when it was moved to Carson.
The concrete highway was completed in the summer of 1921.
The turntable is a later design, and facing the opposite direction from the early days (the spur faced Reno in an 1887 map)
The hotel and bath buildings burned in 1901.

Lucky Me, It was a sheer guess, I saw the steam baths on the hotel and thought it was Steamboat Springs..... Looks great Curtis!

A couple more placeholder buildings. Still haven't decided where that monster of a freight house goes......

Here's the 1880 version, finally complete. I've posted a couple other years in the gallery, as well....
