This photo shows the V&T Railroad sitting at the Carson City depot during a run in the late 1940s. The locomotive has disappeared, off to do some errands in the nearby yards. The cars have been left behind to load and unload mail and passengers before the train continues on its way south to Minden.
At the rear of the train is V&T Caboose #24, painted the V&T's trademark canary yellow. In front of that is coach #18, then mail and baggage car #23. You can see someone unloading the daily mail from Reno from #23. The yellow bus parked next to the train is the connection to Virginia City.
To the right are the eaves of the Carson City Depot, and to the left is the brick Civic Auditorium. This photo is taken from across Carson Street. The tracks don't have any crossing gates on Carson's main street, or seemingly even a signal.
