The engine crew poses with Virginia and Truckee locomotive #5. This was the last engine purchased by the railroad. It was scrapped soon after the railroad ceased operation. By November 1950 the railroad was out of business, and the crew was running the locomotive to bring the last remaining equipment out of Carson City to Reno for sale or scrapping.
