The setting is Duran, New Mexico on a July night in 1960. This is looking south down the tracks. The highway to the left is Highway 54, and the street to the right dead ends just beyond the freight depot (the green house is the last house on that street).
Despite of the liquor store and freight depot being so close to the tracks on each side, that passenger train still zooms through there at 80 mph.

Though I'm not aware of what Duran actually looked like in 1960, this is how the south outskirts is depicted in my story of the community of Duran that is home to Albert and Margret Coyote (Al & Marge), along with their cubs; Jed, Rex and Donna, and their adopted son from the future, Clarence.

From research I did;
I have found out there were the Semaphore train signals and a small freight depot in Duran during those days. As I have depicted in drawings so far, houses and other places in Duran have always been IRL located away from each other with large land properties. That railroad was Southern Pacific until Union Pacific bought SP out in the 1990s. And Highway 54 does parallel the railroad tracks.
