"The famous "Welcome to Needles" wagon was originally part of the decor of the now defunct El Rancho Motel. At that time it sported a sign that said: "El Rancho - Needles - Cooled by refrigeration - Swimming Pool - Room Phones". Now it simply says "Needles - California", and has been painted a different color. It is a "borax wagon" which was used to move out the borax (a type of salt) dug up at Death Valley to the railway sidings in the 1880s. They were pulled by teams of eighteen mules and two horses."
