Nevada's Caliente Station no longer serves passenger trains. It is a mission revival style design, built in 1923 to serve as a spur line on the Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad between Salt Lake City, Utah and Los Angeles, California. It would later serve as a depot on Amtrak's 'Desert Wind' line until 1993.
Today it is protected by the City of Caliente and serves as its city hall, library, and art gallery.
Not far from here is my previous postings on the Cathedral Gorge, Nevada State Park.

Like Luciano, I really like how you have cropped this scene to focus so well on the station and to create a nice unique shape of image. A beautiful building. Someone mentioned to me a while ago that rail stations make great subjects, and looking at this, I have to agree, their styles and designs differ so much around the world!
All the best

Hi dear Ray
The best match with horizontally cropped framework.
Another tasteful and calm postcard presnting your country image 100%. So tasetful color touch in the perfect framework is very nice to see.
All the best and have a good Saturday! Takero from cold Tokyo

You're capturing well this station by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see classical Caliente Train Station with the tasteful design and two-story building in front of low mountains. In United States of a large country and an automotive society, it seems to difficult to continue in profit, since there are few customers using railroad. It is sad a little. It is glad that it is saved well and used for the another purpose.
