For 80 years of operation, the Virginia and Truckee Railroad stopped here at the Franktown Hotel in the Washoe Valley. By the 1940s, the hotel had been converted to the Flying M E Guest Ranch, where out-of-towners could spend six weeks to establish legal residency for the purposes of getting a divorce in Nevada. It looks to be V&T Engine #27 stopped at the water tank.

Source Caption: The FLYING ME DUDE RANCH over in Washoe Valley was a fix me up Franktown Hotel by Emily and Dore Wood around 1948. So if your marriage didn't work out ladies and you need to step away for awhile just take the train to Reno and hop on the V&T they stop right at the FLYING ME. Look there's stuff going on like Hot Springs at night just up the road and many other adventures guests of the Ranch. (Washoe County by Joyce M. Cox)
