Reno Enginehouse

I posted quite a few pictures yesterday of the V&T enginehouse in Reno. This single-stall enginehouse was right near the Truckee River, along the V&T mainline, and had a turntable and a water tank in the vicinity.

The enginehouse was built in the late 1800s, probably soon after the branch line to Reno was built in 1872.

The enginehouse burned on May 1, 1950, with Engine #26 inside. There was only one month left before abandonment of the line
