 First 70 pages are devoted to the Virginia and Truckee that ran between Virginia City and Carson City, Nevada. The last 37 pages are devoted to the Carson and Colorado that ran from Carson City, NV south to Keeler, CA in the Owens Valley. The last two pages contain extensive data about the engines and cars in each railroad, their build year, type, piston size, cylinders and final disposition. The V and T had 27 different engines, mostly built by Baldwin between 1869 and 1913. The C and C had 17 different engines, again mostly built by Baldwin between 1880-89. The two maps of the railroad routes are well designed. Acceptable condition. 1970 3rd Edition, 4th Printing Howell-North. Heavy coated paper and beautiful half-tone photographs throughout. The photograph layouts change spread to spread and the captions are very well developed. There are a few colour plates of nice oil paintings by Howard Fogg. Hardcover with protected DW.
