This photo by John Nulty shows the Carson City enginehouse and yards of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad in the early 1950s. The final run of the V&T was May 31, 1950, and the tracks were taken up soon afterwards. This shows the remnants after the rails were removed. Weeds are starting to reclaim the yards here, but Stewart Street has not yet been extended through the old turntable area yet. The enginehouse would stand until 1991 when it was finally demolished.
