TORRINGTON HISTORY

Torrington is the first major town in Wyoming ("major" in Wyoming means more than about 500 people, I think!) on the CB&Q on its line through Casper. Though it isn't represented on the layout, I've collected enough interesting images to warrant giving the town its own page.

This is the Torrington Depot about 1908. Interesting features are the big windmill that pumps water into the big water tank it stands behind, and the semaphore signal at the station. Farther in the distance is the coaling tower.

This rather grainy photo is Torrington in the late 1920s. Fortunately, Torrington seems to have changed a great deal since this picture was taken, as you can see in the photo on the main History page.

More info later.
