Overview

The Virginia and Truckee Railroad was America's richest and most famous short line railroad. The remains of this notable piece of history are now housed at this museum. There are more than 50 pieces of equipment including five steam locomotives and several restored coaches and freight cars. The museum offers lectures, an annual history symposium, changing exhibits and the operation of historic railroad equipment. Before the collection began, Hollywood movie studios purchased much of the original equipment from the V&T and one can see some of the trains in old movies.
