Kent in SD
LOL! Yes, I think just about every state has a town by that name, and there are surrounding hamlets with the pre-fixes of East, West, North and South.

Although I geo-tag the camera location for all of my postings, I also generally try to accurately describe the location depicted in the image. On railroads that have an obvious milepost system, I try to list the actual milepost location as closely as possible. My favorite, of course, is the old Rio Grande NG System, because some superb guides have been published over the years that enable me to nail some locations down to perhaps 5/100ths of a mile.
