• Nevada's Virginia & Truckee Railroad (Images of Rail)

    The Virginia & Truckee is the most famous short line railroad in American history. Brainchild of William Sharon and the Bank of California, the V&T hauled the silver and gold ore, the cordwood, and the mining timbers that made the 1870s "Big Bonanza" a reality. From the state capital at Carson City, V&T rails stretched 66 miles to Virginia City, Reno, and Minden, Nevada. Serving the transportation needs of the Comstock's nearly 40,000 inhabitants, the V&T remained in operation until 1950. The enormously successful railroad paid its early owners handsome dividends. The V&T's ornate locomotives and cars have starred in hundreds of Hollywood productions and are now preserved in US museums. Since 1976, fourteen miles of the railroad have been restored to operation. The Virginia & Truckee has become an enduring legend.

  • From the Desk of Truckee's C.F. McGlashan: His Letters to Eliza Donner Houghton, Donner Party Survivor, Investigative Report of a Massacred Wagon Train, Truckee-Tahoe Adventures and More

    Charles Fayette McGlashan (1847-1931), truly a genius, is the patriarch of Truckee, California. His life was filled with amazing achievements. He was a pioneer newspaper editor, a formidable criminal defense attorney, originator of winter sports in the West, progressive legislator in Sacramento, inventor, scientist, and a spellbinding orator who was in great demand at civic functions throughout the state. He is best remembered for his History of the Donner Party. In From the Desk of Truckee;s C.F. McGlashan, he tells how, through a chance meeting with a Donner Party survivor, he came to be the Donner Party biographer. Read his letters, never before printed, to Eliza Donner Houghton, just a child when the wagon train was stalled for the winter at Donner Lake. Their exchange of letters helped unravel the details of the tragedy. McGlashan also describes his interview with a pathetic Lewis Keseberg, who was accused of killing Eliza's mother, Tamsen Donner. Read his nationally reported news story of the gruesome slaughter of a wagon train by renegade Mormons dressed as U.S. Calvary "rescuing" the wagon train from Indians. Learn how he accurately measured the depth of Lake Tahoe with a weight champagne bottle and almost drowned, and how he rode a runaway snowplow train through the Donn...
