On a trip to Reno in September, I found that the railroad has been put underground, the construction taking out a whole row of old motels. The sign from the Uptown Motel is all that remains of it. Many thanks to Dan MacPherson for info. 12-06

Check out his oft photographed sign for the Sandman Motel. Just looking at this marquee will resolve any questions why. Another roadside gem found in the Nevada desert. 02-07

A place named the Down Towner is an inviting name no matter what town you're visiting. Check out the boomerang arrow and lettering on this marquee.
