D&RGW

This was one of the greatest sources of inspiration for many model railroads. Probably the most famous was John Allen's "Gorre & Daphetid" in Monterey, California. Worth looking up for the incredible detail and landscape scale it depicted. Sadly, the entire structure burned down just days after John died of a heart attack in 1973.

D&RGW RR Royal Gorge

The logo & the Royal Gorge itself.

Roof nomenclature

I looked up "chamfered roof peaks" and found reference to a "jerkinhead roof".

Dutch Bonnet Depot

Reminds me of the Dutch bonnet or cap seen in vintage costumes. Is there a name for this style of architecture?
