Seen here is the tail end of the V&T Railroad as it leaves Stewart at the south end of the Eagle Valley. The train is on its way to Minden; Hot Springs Mountain can be seen in the background to the left. Caboose #24 is pulling up the rear of this short train, painted yellow like all the other V&T equipment.
This photo was taken during the last month of the V&T's operation. The train is being pulled by Engine #27, which was one of only two locomotives the line had left running. Also in the consist are coaches 23 and 18; these three cars were often found together in the Railroad's last days.
Weeds are already growing through the rails here; within a month the railroad would be shut down and the tracks torn up.
