Reynard is a railroad siding between Sano and Bronte. South of Reynard is the site of Smoke Creek Station[1].

Wikipedia states "Reynard is a literary cycle of allegorical French, Dutch, English, and German fables largely concerned with Reynard, an anthropomorphic red fox and trickster figure"[2]. Probably Reynard and the nearby Fox Range share a common origin. "The Train Sheet" states that Reynard is the namr of the fox in "Reynard the Fox" and that foxes were common in the area.[3]

Myrick states that prior to 1917, the Western Pacific was considering building a light-traffic line from Reynard through Buffalo Canyon to the Surprise Valley near Cedarville[4].

In 1921, the Nevada State Legislature granted a right of way to John E. Sexton and associates that ran from Reynard northwest to T 37N R 18 E, which is near Duck Lake and the California line. During the first 10 years, operating the line was optional during January, February and March.[5]
