Hi Keith and all,
This corrugated tin question has bugged me for some time.  I was looking through my Nevada Central (Ferrell) book and saw that in the mid-1880s (after 1882 anyway and before 1893 due to the equipment) the Clifton station appears to have had corrugated sheets on the roof!  This depot was probably built not too long after the road was completed (1880) and I don't suppose that they would have replaced the roof that soon after opening the line.  The engine house also appears to have it as well.  So that puts the use in Nevada 10 years earlier than I could find prior.  That's a nice bit of information for me anyway, just thought I would share.
