V&T Steam?
Posted by New Haven I-5 on Saturday, March 1, 2008 10:38 PM
 I heard that the V&T line from Virginia City to Gold Hil has a running Steam engine. Is this true??

I think there is one running on rebuilt track paid by the state of Nevada. I think it is one of the 4-4-0s

When I was there two years ago, their steam engine rebuild was almost completed - the boiler tubes were finally installed and it was awaiting hydro test and inspection.  Should be running now unless some other ugly problem raised it's head (which is all too common on steam engines.)
