This photo by John Nulty shows the Carson City yards of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad in the early 1950s. The final run of the V&T was May 31, 1950, and the tracks were taken up soon afterwards. This shows the remnants after the rails were removed. Railroad ties are still stuck in the dirt, rotting in the desert sun. You can follow the old path of the line as it headed towards what is today Mills Park. Two buildings are still standing. If I'm right, the building on the left was the paint shop and on the right is a car barn.

From left to right, the two-story building is the V&T Oil House, the long building is the V&T Paint Shop or Paint House, and the building in the distance on the right is the V&T Derrick House.
