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". 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.
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.
