In the history of the Old West, few names conjure-up such exciting memories of manifest destiny as the Virginia & Truckee Railroad. The bonanza line recalls the days of free-wheeling western expansion, silver mines, gold bullion, huge stamp mills, six-shooters, braudy-houses, overnight wealth, brass-bound 4-4-0s and the Comstock Lode.

Like a double-eagle on the green felt of a faro table, the V&T shines as the most famous of all short line railways. This volume is a grand word and picture look at the railroad throughout her eighty-one year history, up to the present day in photographs and other illustrative matter that tell the story of the Comstock road better than words alone can describe. So stand back, here comes the V&T in all of her unabashed glory… High, Wide and Handsome.

The historic Virginia & Truckee Railroad, from its frenzied beginning near the Comstock Lode, to its Hollywood prominence, and beyond. The in-depth story of one of America’s best known short line railroads.
