Today's postcard is a great view of the Union Pacific Railroad Depot and yards with a passenger train in the station in Pine Bluffs Wyoming and this postcard was mailed from there in January of 1918. Pine Bluffs was established in 1868 and was originally called Rock Ranch but Union Pacific changed the name to Pine Bluffs for the nearby bluffs. The population there was 246 in 1910, 771 in 1940 and 1,153 in 2000. Pine Bluffs is located on Interstate 80 close to the Wyoming Nebraska border and near Cheyenne Wyoming. This post card can be found in my Wyoming listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.
