    Hi Curtis,

    Nice to see the pictures of your route. I read up on the road a while back after having seen some of your earlier posts. Great history! Look forward to more pics.

    Looks good! Looking forward to seeing that Lyon model! Also, will it be much longer before we can get updates of your tracks that have the rail endcaps restored...?

    Thanks!

    First passenger depot at Virginia City (October 1870). It still exists and is once again the Virginia City depot of the (restored) V&T.

    Pencil42,
    Those are some really nice shots of the route. It looks great! For the shot of the first passenger trains, I'm guessing that the coach passengers were riding up front and the first class got the enclosed passenger car. Gotta love those railroad amenities.

    The route looks wonderful.

    Thanks, Heinrich! The excursion in #187 was the initial run of the line's first passenger car, and as such, they used flats (aka platform cars) to handle the additional load. Throughout their history, they would continue to use modified flats for overflow seating for picnic or excursion trains.
    One note; one of the passengers wrote a piece in the newspaper about a similar excursion train a little later; he said:
    We, like all the rest of the male passengers, preferred the forward deck to the cabin, so the platform cars were the favorite resort for the interested lookouts, where we might gloat over the rude, sterile sagebrush scenery, and shout greetings, as we passed, to the Chinese laborers scattered along the line of the road, keeping it in order. The grand difficulty were to keep run of the locomotive. At one time it was to the windward and next minute to the leeward.

    Hello Pencil42,

    If I may, what is the name of that Wooden Trestle Walkway you have over the 3 Track Stubs...... And I really like the fact you were able to Curve it....... Can't always do that much with certain Bridge Structures....

    It looks really cool............
