A Main Street You Can Model: Sundance, Wyoming
By Vic Worthington/Drawings by the author
Wyoming resident Vic Worthington has been researching the small town of Sundance, Wyoming. Located in Crook County, well-known outlaw Harry Alonzo Longabaugh of the "Wild Bunch" outlaw gang served an 18 month term in the jail, earning the nickname "Sundance Kid."
Vic has drawn the Third Street building fronts as they appeared in the 1930's. The distinctive Elk Horn Cafe, Model Grocery, Frank Baker's store, Pharmacy, and the Mortuary make up a company set of wooden store fronts that would be perfect for any small town setting west of the Mississippi.
As a courtesy to readers of the 2012 On30 Annual, we are providing full-size drawings of these structures in O scale that can be downloaded for your own personal use. Combined with the wonderful photo Vic found at the Crook County Museum, you can build a great main street for your layout set in the early 20th century.
