This is an overhead view of the downtown Reno train yards in the early 1870s. The Central Pacific mainline is on the left, and the Virginia and Truckee tracks are on the right. The CP tracks stretch off into the Nevada desert, as part of the Transcontinental Railroad. The V&T tracks curve to the right, where they cross the Truckee River on the truss bridge you can see in the background on the far right. Beyond that the tracks go to Carson City and Virginia City.
