The backside of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad's freight depot in Virginia City. This photo from the 1970s was taken long after the railroad had sold the the depot and it was occupied by a private party. However the railroad history of the site was still alluded to with these two former railroad cars parked out back. The car on the right was a caboose from the Nevada Copper Belt Railroad near Yerington. It was later moved to the town of Goldfield. The car on the left was a caboose from the Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad, #3337. That caboose still sits behind the depot today.
