Southern Pacific Locomotive No. 8 is a narrow gauge engine that worked on the Southern Pacific branch (former Carson and Colorado) in the Owens Valley, California, travelling between Laws and Keeler. After the engine was retired it was donated to the State of Nevada. It was stored in front of Roy Boswell's Eagle Territory Museum at 310 Mountain St. for nine years, before being moved to the State Library downtown. It is believed this is a photo of the engine in that front yard.
