|Thanks for the links. The Epsom Salts line was a Lartigue type, the single rail laid on top of "A" frame structures. The last link MUSEUM/LOCOLOCO shows the line, slightly different info than in Myrick's Railroads of Nevada book. However, the photos show how narrow the canyon in the scene was...no "regular" rail line could be located there. Although the author of the piece couldn't see a loco, the "thing" with the umbrella sticking out the top is the loco. My "replica" of that loco was posted earlier. There was a nice article about this in an old Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette but I don't have that and don't remember the date.
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
