Needles CA El Garces 2764a
Like many other California cities, Needles has a very elaborate train station dating from the early 1900's. Getting a picture of the station was not easy due to its size (see adjacent pictures.) Such very elaborate stations in remote locations seem surprising now, but were important for providing a sense of comfort for the cross-country rail traveler of that era. This station, called El Garces, was one of the famous Harvey Houses.
