Southern Pacific Locomotive No. 8 on display in downtown Sparks. This narrow gauge engine worked on the Southern Pacific branch (former Carson and Colorado) in the Owens Valley, California, travelling between Laws and Keeler. After the engine was retired it was donated to the State of Nevada. It was displayed in Carson City until 1975, when it was brought to downtown Sparks. It is still there today, on display in Lillard Park.
