Southern Pacific Locomotive No. 8 on display at the old Post Office in downtown Carson City. This narrow gauge engine 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 a house on the west side of Carson for nine years (Roy Boswell's Eagle Territory Museum at 310 Mountain St.), and then in 1964 was brought downtown for the Nevada Centennial celebration. It remained here until 1975 when it was moved to downtown Sparks. It is still there today.
