Includes an interesting 5 page section that lists the movie films and TV shows that used Virginia & Truckee equipment. David T. Myrick says: "The Virginia & Truckee Railroad became a legend long before the last train ran in 1950. Those who lived the days of glitter and bustle in Virginia City during the hectic days of the Comstock Lode have been gone for decades. Even those who rode the train to Virginia City as youngsters are vanishing. Ted Wurm and Harre Demoro, well-qualified railroad scholars, add this personal touch to this well-rounded story of the V & T which brings out little-known facts of the railroad's history. Fine, bright copy in dust jacket.
