This is of the train depot in Canton, SD Jan. 29, 1907 as it burns. It has been rebuilt and is now a museum.

This topic has been dormant too long!

Here are a couple cards I picked up as counterparts to a stock certificate in my collection from the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. I'll post all of them here. These feature the famous hanging trestle, a signature landmark along the scenic route.

Three more train views, well one train, and two spur tracks leading to mills.
There is nothing on this first card to tell us where this train is headed, other than a Willard, New Mexico postmark.
The second card is the mill at Northwestern, a town in Mendocino county CA and two set of tracks.
The third card is the mill at Bulwinkle, Humboldt county situated on Little River. This card was mailed from Trinidad a week before the Bulwinkle post office opened.

That last one looks a lot like a funicular railway, where a descending car counterbalances the one going up. Any more info on this one?
