Postcard of downtown Laurel, circa 1905 - but doesn't this just look like a model?

That isn't someone's layout? If I had to bet, I'd bet that it was a model.
In what state was this town?

I wonder just how you could get a realistic "cracked" plate for a model photo. Photoshop perhaps?
The area appears to be in Oregon or Washington...hard to tell.

Looks like the South Pacific Coast?
In the second photo it seems that the ties are extra long on the right hand track.  maybe ready to be standard gauged?

Yes it is - if you stare hard enough at the first pic you can see the boxcar is labled SPC
