Map of The Day: Truckee Railyard

IMG_0971

Map of the day

This is a zoning map from Truckee, California on the redevelopment of a rail yard. Near where the Donner Party resorted to eating each other in 22 feet of snow. The railway and a freeway restrain the city to a linear layout, as do the surrounding hills and mountains. This photo was taken in the town’s railway museum. The legend is very small, so red = Downtown extension, purple = warehousing, and yellow = a new neighborhood.
