The small town of Wabuska, in the Mason Valley north of Yerington, was a stop on the Carson and Colorado Railroad. After the Southern Pacific took over the railroad the depot there stayed in use for a while. Here SP locomotive #3237 is stopped at the depot. By the 1980s the depot was abandoned. In the late 80s it was moved to the Nevada State Railroad Museum where it was restored and now serves as the passenger depot for their steam train rides.
