Virginia and Truckee Railroad

Ride into the past aboard Nevada's scenic and historic Virginia and Truckee Railroad from Virginia City to Gold Hill and back. By far the most famous of all American short lines, the ornate V&T trains hosted U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries in their heyday. The V and T R.R., completed in 1869, also hauled millions of dollars in gold and silver ore from the mines of the Comstock. Today, the railroad operates 100-year-old steam engines and heritage diesel locomotives, departing from the original 1870 depot at 166 F Street. The conductor-narrated excursions roll by some of the most famous mines and ruins. You may even see wild horses run alongside the tracks.
