Good Golly, the depot in shot #1 in Ward, CO is apparently still standing. Even more amazing - there is a Google street view of it - it could be business or a private residence. You can place yourself almost where the photographer stood more than a century ago.

Thanks for the excellent research and historical notes in this series, Flynn!

That RR was called "The Switzerland Trail of America". Very good book by Forest Crossen (1978) in my library tells the whole story.Quite a little RR!
