Taylor was the name given to a small section station established about 1905 along the Southern Pacific's Nevada & California Railroad. The name was changed to Bango by the 1910s, and evidently at some point later to Diatom (as it appears on USGS Topographic Maps). Water was obtained from the Truckee Canal and Bango appears to have been a fairly green place up until its abandonment about 1960. A concrete foundation remains in the shadow of the modern Bango Oil Recycling Company.
