After visiting a fellow gamers basement yesterday who has over 500 games many of them old German games never released in the US I got to thinking about good American Western Themed games (she had a number of obscure Western games). I'm designing a card driven euro hybrid from 1900-1940 but I have some other good ideas for a pure western area development game. It seems most games just focus on cowboys and gunfights, but are there any games that focus on a broader development of the region? Any suggestions (Besides Bang! like card games).

It seems like a perfect period for a good epic or regular euro game (trains, industry, mining, settlers, natives etc)
Anyway,
Thanks!
