Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


Luning was a stop on the old Carson & Colorado Railroad. It is not a ghost town but it does have a few interesting old buildings. These industrial buildings were once served by the railroad. I’m not sure what kind of industry this was, perhaps something to do with mining. It had a truck scale, and a place where trucks dumps their load (ore? rock?) into a bin, where it was moved by conveyor into the main building.

The other side of the building (above) faced a railroad siding and had facilities for loading something into hoppers. The railroad tracks are long gone now. A short distance to the east is a building that might have been a warehouse or freight depot.
