A fantastic resource for us all from our Canadian friends. (With a separate section for the Early Rail guys.)

Besides "Railways", look at "Marine Services" and "Structures".

Here's a site I just ran across with photos from the Northern Plains around the 1900's, most from North Dakota area.

I would like to add a link to photos of plants that are sorted by region... like desert, deciduous forest and grasslands and so on. I was looking for scenes/scenery plants in the desert southwest and discovered flowering plants of the desert. Some of the pages have links to more images and have listings of other sites that are germane to the particular plant. Most of these plants are accents in a particular biome. They help make a scene a lot less boring. Think of these plants as the details that really makes a scene. Kinda' like the plumbing and the electric meter on the outside of a structure.

Here's a great site for those early ATSF modelers from the Kansas Historical Society. Lots of photos of turn of the century trains and even a few of the industries they served. http://www.kansasmemory.org/item/208362

Here are some links for Black Diamond Coal Company in Washington. Circa 1900's.

This structure, I just love. I think I am going to prepare drawings and such and build this one.
