Sadly, not the sharpest view, but I felt this 1200dpi crop and enhanced version is still one of the most important views I have of the Taylor & Brunton Sampler, which later seems to have been also known as Copeland Sampler and Eagle Sampler even later some info indicates – and this photo was marked as Eagle Sampler on the backside, so that might be the reason, but further research is needed to get the story line of the ownership of that Sampler Structure in order.
   What is cool, and I did not know this till I noticed it on my 1200dpi scan, there are Dual Gauge tracks at this Sampler! On both levels of it also, I count five, sort of, parallel tracks of 3-rails, three is at the upper level where two are going into the shed there and one is running around it on the outside right. On the lower level one is into the shed part and one is on the outside. The Golden Circle seems to have had a spur down the southern leg of the M.T. wye seen about 1/4 in from right-hand side and following the track down the hill using a sort of switchback method to reach the sampler. I first suspected the connection was behind the House/Office seen about 2/5 up from bottom and about 1/3 in from left-hand side, but that seems to be a dead-end switching spur only as there is a height difference I can't make out to have been evened out, so I think they dual-gauged the M.T. tracks instead, using the wye and switchback spur down to the Sampler. I wonder if I ever will find out where it came down to the Sampler from…
   The railroad cars in lower left is all part of a small Short Line Yard located there, and in the background, about 1/5 down from top is the 'out yard' for the 'Black Sampler' which is outside this cropped view at upper right. In foreground, about bottom left to about 1/6 up from bottom right, the spur down from the M.T. Yard is seen sort of, and I think this is the spur that also held the dual gauge track.Cropped View; the Taylor & Bruntin Sampler, Located on Victor Pass.
