The Virginia & Truckee Railroad was built to serve the Comstock Lode serving communities of northwestern Nevada. At its height, the railroad's route ran from Reno south to Carson City. The railroad was abandoned in 1950 after years of declining revenue. Much of the rail infrastructure was pulled up and sold, along with the remaining locomotives and railcards. In the 1970's, the old lines were rebuilt by private investors. Today the V & T Railroad Company operates as a heritage railroad headquartered in Virginia City, Nevada.
