• Caliente Railroad Depot - Caliente, Nevada

      You'd be forgiven for wondering why Caliente, a modest town of little more than 1,000 people, might be home to such an impressive mission-style station. In the 1920s, its location, about halfway between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City, made it an ideal stopping point when the railroad came through. The first floor housed waiting and railroad offices, upstairs was a 50-room motel. However, the arrival of diesel locos meant this stopover point / maintenance depot was no longer needed. The depot is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
