RASOR RANCH
Located in the Devils Playground - Mojave Desert - Est. 1905

This is a photo of the water tower that use to be at Rasor Ranch.
This tank held 30,000 gallons of water to refill the trains of the Tonopah Tidewater Railway.

"That is me by the water tank freezing to death in the wind. As I recall it  we were out there Christmas time in 1960 or 1961 possibly 1959 but no earlier. At that time this was a hard place to get to and there was little evidence that people had been there since the rails were taken up. We were out rock hunting, following the old rail grade and found the station. This was the only time we were there, these are the only pictures. It saddens me greatly to think that it is gone, torn down or damaged by vandals. "

His father (Walter Doyon) passed away and left him these photos. He wanted me to share them with all of you but strongly asked that they be copyright protected!

Here is the only know photo of the actual Rasor Ranch House that was nestled in the Tamarisk trees along the old Tonopah & Tidewater Rail Road tracks. How nice would it be to still have the wonderful cabin to visit at our favorite camping place in the desert. This is beautiful!

Here is a photo of behind the awesome Rasor Ranch House and if you look carefully you will see the propane tank. I am not sure what the little structure is on the right but it looks like some of the others that we have found out there and it may be a chicken house.

Here is a photo of the Ranch water tower looking to the North along the remains of the old Tonopah & Tidewater train tracks.

"It was bitterly cold this day, the wind was blowing and the tin roof was whistling and clanking. As I recall we did not go in any of the buildings, only walked around. I am sure that I have a picture of the house that was there but at this moment I can't seem to find it. My slide collection from those days numbers almost a thousand and unfortunately dad did not label them or sort them as he should have. At present my personal projects are to get the slides from these trips out on Google Earth and any other venue that 'will have them' and attach my fathers name. It is personally important to me as I did not leave an heir to carry on his name but will do that through his travels and also by doing the family history on Ancestors.com"

OC Keith & friend LeRoy firmly believe that we found the location of this beautiful cabin. We found the location and all that is left are two wells and some debris.

Here are the wells that we found. How nice would it be to still have this awesome house out at Rasor Road for all to visit.

Here are a couple of photos of Afton Canyon by Andre Doyon
