Overview

The Virginia and Truckee Railroad, known as the "Queen of the Short Lines", first rolled in 1870. Its legendary engines and engineers opened the silver hills of Nevada's Comstock Lode through some of the steepest and curviest rail lines in America.

The V&T is now a tourism line, steaming passengers from the Carson City railhead to Virginia City. Under the care of the Nevada Commission for the Reconstruction of the V&T Railway, (NCRVTR) the V&T is rolling again.

This site is here to illustrate and support the restoration of a beautiful railway that redefined the economy of the American West.
