1533 Tama & Toledo Railroad Company. Toledo, Iowa. On the Milwaukee interchange at Tama. Built by G.E. in November 1944, 150 M.P. 4-27-49. (Originally built as an electric line around the turn of the century this little road ended its days as a freight only carrier equipped with a modern, if small, diesel. The road extended between the towns of its name in east central Iowa, a distance of 3 1/2 miles, connecting with both the Chicago & Northwestern and the Milwaukee road at Tama. C&NW branch paralleled the Tama & Toledo all the way, but its engines were unable to negotiate the sharp curves in Toledo which probably was the reason the road kept running; however a solution must have been found or its business fell away, for in February 1953 abandonment came to the Tama and Toledo.)

1373 Midland Terminal Railway. The road's rotary at the roundhouse at Colorado City. 7-18-41. The Midland Terminal was a standard gauge ore road extending from Colorado Springs, Colorado to Cripple Creek, 56 miles. The road was owned by the Golden Cycle Corporation which had mines at Cripple Creek and a refinery at Colorado Springs, and the ore shipped to the refinery was almost all the business the line had. So when the refinery was moved to Cripple Creek in 1948 there was almost nothing for the road to haul. In the same year the ICC granted the line permission to abandon service and to tear up the track. Although the line was steep and crooked it was maintained in excellent condition there being a work train out all summer long that would do credit to a Class I railroad. Passenger trade was poor in spite of the marvelous scenery.

The Midland Terminal was a standard gauge ore road extending from Colorado Springs, Colorado to Cripple Creek, 56 miles. The road was owned by the Golden Cycle Corporation which had mines at Cripple Creek and a refinery at Colorado Springs, and the ore shipped to the refinery was almost all the business the line had. So when the refinery was moved to Cripple Creek in 1948 there was almost nothing for the road to haul. In the same year the ICC granted the line permission to abandon service and to tear up the track. Although the line was steep and crooked it was maintained in excellent condition there being a work train out all summer long that would do credit to a Class I railroad. Passenger trade was poor in spite of the marvelous scenery.
1341 The Manila Railroad. Luzon Island. Philippine Islands. This meter gauge line was also called the "Luzon Military Railway" by the U.S. Army when it was in control.

1320 Fruit Growers Supply Company. Westwood, California. This road is abandoned. Of the three engines at the bottom the 101 is pictured under steam and was the relief engine. The 101 and 102 were consolidations and the 104 was a Mikado. These engines comprised the roster at Westwood when operations ended there in 1956. 11-28-50. The Red River Lumber Company operated a large mill at Westwood and an electrified log railroad between Westwood and Chester. In 1946 the company was purchased by the Fruit Growers Supply Company and soon after the only railroad operation at Westwood was a switch engine for the mill and in 1956 the company sold the town and mill; the engines were brought by a scrap dealer.
1326 This is a three foot gauge hobby road owned by Ward Kimball and located in San Gabriel, California. These pictures taken in 1939 show the rolling stock shortly after it had been received. The little mogul was purchased from the Nevada Central Railway which ran between Battle Mountain and Austin; it was their number 2 (The "Sidney Dillon") and built by Baldwin in 1881. The coach came from the Southern Pacific narrow gauge in the Owens Valley of eastern California, near Bishop. Since these pictures were taken Mr. Kimball has restored this equipment to a marvelous condition and has added other early day railroad items. *View image

1207 Clover Valley Lumber Co. Loyalton, California. About three or four miles north of Hawley is located the pass between Sierra Valley, in which Loyalton is located and Clover Valley. There is a steep grade on both sides of this pass on the railroad with the north side being by far the more gradual and less winding; even so, the Mallet could haul no more than eighteen empties or twelve loads to the summit. Here a train of empties is about a mile from the summit on the north side and descending toward Clover Valley. 7-28-50.
1279 Denver & Rio Grande Western. Narrow Gauge Lines. The very end of the Silverton branch where the mines once boomed. At one time there were two other railroads running out of here; narrow gauge, of course. 9-6-50.
1297 Feather River Lumber Company. Loyalton, California. Pumping up the air on some loads near the Jammer and about one mile from the gravel pit. These four pictures taken July 16, 1957 are of an excursion run by the lumber company for its employees' children. To give them an idea of the purpose of the railroad, some empties were hauled to the Jammer, near the gravel pit and some loads were brought back to the mill. In the woods a box lunch was served with lots of soda pop.
1173 Chicago, Burlington & Quincy. The depot, engine house and early morning activity at the end of a 104 mile long branch line at Burwell, Nebraska. This branch leaves the Lincoln-Billings main line at Aurora and serves farming towns in the northern part of the state in a picturesque operation. This is the appealing type of railroading. 6-27-49.

1145 Chicago Railroad Fair 1948. The "Deadwood Central" was built and operated by the Burlington as a working replica of an early day narrow gauge line, and was very popular. The engine, baggage car and observation car were original although lettered especially for this event. Maybe a mile long the line had no turning facility; the train backed from the "Central City" depot to the end of track and then came chuffing back.

1368 Midland Terminal Railway. Work train switching at the road's tie treating plant at Green Mountain Falls. July, 1941. The Midland Terminal was a standard gauge ore road extending from Colorado Springs, Colorado to Cripple Creek, 56 miles. The road was owned by the Golden Cycle Corporation which had mines at Cripple Creek and a refinery at Colorado Springs, and the ore shipped to the refinery was almost all the business the line had. So when the refinery was moved to Cripple Creek in 1948 there was almost nothing for the road to haul. In the same year the ICC granted the line permission to abandon service and to tear up the track. Although the line was steep and crooked it was maintained in excellent condition there being a work train out all summer long that would do credit to a Class I railroad. Passenger trade was poor in spite of the marvelous scenery.

Since horses were used to pull the small lumber cars from the mill to the loading tracks and the lumber drying piles, the tracks going off to the right lead to the box factory, which occupied the right wing of the building. Sawdust and shavings from the planing mill were blown up the pipe shown behind the planing mill to the large storage bin below the pipe, from whence this material was loaded in railroad cars and shipped, to be used for packing, ice storage, etc.

Line which ran between Hobart Mills and Truckee, California.—shortly after the pic was taken the line was abandoned and the plow was cut up for fire-wood. This little short-line originally ran in the Incline area at Lake Tahoe where it was used in the woods to bring logs to the mill at the foot of the famous Incline. The entire operation was moved across Lake Tahoe and installed at a new location north-east of Truckee which became Hobart Mills. Print and caption by Walt Mulcahy.

Shelton Penoyer, the famous railroad artist, in 1937, who made arrangements for its preservation by The Railroad and Locomotive Historical Society. Was used in movie Union Pacific and was shown at New York Fair “Railroads on Parade.” Now stored in California. Very rare.

3146 Panoramic view of Verdi, 1915, looking west towards Verdi Peak Ridge, planing mill and box factory in left hand panel extreme left, above “Verdi Lumber Company” caption. To its right, in front of planing mill burner smoke, is the first Dog Valley Logging Railroad roundhouse, which was destroyed by fire in June 1917. To the right of the roundhouse, is the Lumber Company horse barn, and to the right of it is the boarding house. The sawmill is at the right side of the left panel. In the center of the right hand panel may be seen the old California Sugar and White Pine Agency planing mill burner chimney, and immediately to the right and behind it is the Dog Valley Logging Railroad trestle over the Truckee River. In the right foreground of the right panel, behind the automobile, may be seen the brick Verdi Lumber Company business block, which housed the Company’s offices, at the left then the Verdi post office in the center of the building, and the Company’s store to the right. The road from Truckee and Dog Valley may be seen coming across the sagebrush flat behind this building, with the old whi
3175 3-photo panoramic view of Dog Valley, March or April 1941, after its acquisition by the Forest Service. Photograph taken from first summit, looking down main fork. Observe sagebrush invasion of upper meadow in right hand panel. On the extreme left of the panoramic view may be clearly seen the wye on the two branches of the old logging railroad to second summit. The branch to the left was first used about 1908, and the line to the right was the 1912 relocation of the earlier line. Note passing siding on the 1912 line, often used, according to some sources, by helper engines waiting to assist trains over second summit. Old Sario sheep corral may be seen just above the wye. Original Pilot Creek Dam installed late in 1940, may be seen at lower end of main fork channel.
3136 Picnic train pulled by the “2-Spot” on trestle over the Truckee River, July 4, 1916. The first picnic train to Dog Valley over the scenic old logging railroad was run on June 16, 1902. It was such a great success that these outings became an established custom in the years following. Benches and railings were attached to the logging cars to carry the sightseers. No fares were charged as the railroad was not subject to I. C. C. regulations not being a commercial carrier. This particular picnic group was probably en route to Merrill Valley, immediately west of Dog Valley, a spot much favored for those outings after 1912.

Old Verdi School is long frame building behind pine tree on right side of picture. Present brick Verdi School occupies the same site. Lonkey Hall, the Verdi Town Hall, is the building just across the Central Pacific Railroad tracks on the extreme right. The stonework seen in the building wall facing the tracks is a portion of the boiler room of Oliver Lonkey’s old Verdi Planing Mill Company plant which was burned completely, except for this stone wall, in September, 1888, taking the original town hall with it. Photo by Shirley.
3137 Planing mill and box factory, Verdi, about 1905, while it was being managed by the California Pine Box and Lumber Company. Planing mill occupied the right wing of the building on the right; the box factory occupied its left wing behind the sawdust storage bank, which is on the right end of the building, on the left in this photograph. On the extreme right may be seen the end of the first roundhouse for the logging railroad, a one or at the most two engine capacity affair. Destroyed by fire in 1917. Photo by Henry Hunken.
3139 Planing mill and storage sheds, California Sugar and White Pine Agency, Verdi, circa 1907. Looking towards Dog Creek Canyon. This Agency agreed in 1905 to make Verdi a shipping point, erecting the above structures there, and as a result of this agreement, the Verdi Lumber Company started the survey that year for the first rail line southwest up the main fork of Dog Creek to second summit, thence westward into the head of Stampede Valley, and the lower ends of Merrill Valley and Sardine Valley, where it would meet with Boca and Loyalton. This would shunt the Lewis Mill lumber traffic to Verdi, necessitating the additional planing mill and storage space. These structures stood along the Dog Valley Railroad, between the sawmill and the present Donner Trail Ranch.
3113 Verdi Lumber company mill, from the Verdi side, circa 1920. Large man on the right in front of the shanty is Al Nash; man on the left is Fred Nelson. Conveyor belt shown carried 2-foot slabs to the storage bins above the railroad cars from whence the cars were loaded and shipped to Reno and other points for stove wood, only the sawdust and edgings were conveyed as waste to the burner.
3128 Verdi Lumber Company’s railroad trestle across the Truckee River near Verdi, circa 1910, looking west upstream, from the old Dutch Flat-Donner Lake-Henness Pass Road. Bridge and trestle were rebuilt after their destruction by the March, 1907, flood waters. The former overhead truss type of bridge over the river itself was succeeded by the inverted truss structure pictured here.
3088 [Railroad bridge] 14 July 1966.
3089 Looking west up main Dog Creek from Verdi Lumber Company railroad grade. Observe Katz ranch buildings in foreground and ruins of old Verdi Flume Company V-flume in the meadow just beyond. Brickell and Kruger board fence runs across lower meadow, which had good cover at this time, with no gullies apparent. (May 1903) Photo by Oliver.
3106 Planing mill and box factory, Verdi Lumber Company, early 1903. The sawmill may be seen in the right background, and behind it the line logging railroad, twisting its way up Dog Creek Canyon towards Dog Valley. White building to the right of the planing mill and box factory is the first round house for the lumber company railroad, which was destroyed by fire in 1917, at which time it was relocated on the flat northwest of the sawmill.

113 No tracks! No ties! No trains! But the old depot of the Las Vegas and Tonapah Railroad still stands proudly today in the Nevada ghost town of Rhyolite near Death Valley. The depot is one of the few buildings still intact in what in 1906 was a metropolis of the Southwest. The depot houses a large collection of desert curios and museum items of early Rhyolite.

116 Rhyolite Depot. While most Gold-rush towns were tent cities, Rhyolite rushed to build of cut stone and concrete. The LV&T railroad main planning was to build the best depot west of Chicago. The first passenger train to Rhyolite arrived Dec. 14, 1906 with a Pullman and two coachs loaded with a hundred passengers eager to buy mining stock. Rhyolite was most proud of the freight trains that filled the 105 car capacity of the rail yard. The freight cars were loaded with goods for local merchants and lumber and supplies for the Montgomery-Shoshone mine. In the spring of 1907 there was plenty of freight for all the lines. It seemed that every time Thyolite planned a railroad celebration that the train wound-up in Beatty. Passenger trains came from all parts of the country loaded with a gullible public ready to invest in any hole in the ground. Publisher: Royal Pictures. Photo by Merle Porter.

4748 From: Final Report. Relief Homeless Indians. Nevada. Lorenzo D. Creel. Special Supervisor. June 30, 1917. Photographic Exhibit No. "1". (82-1/II/2) June 13, 1917. View of the Irwin ranch and orchards, Railroad Valley in the distance. This was the first ranch located in this section. It lies at the mouth of Duckwater Creek. This creek is fed by a number of hot springs. There is also much waste water. There is a good reservoir site on the Irwin ranch, which will in the near future be utilized to furnish water for land in Railroad Valley, which is now subject to entry. Railroad Valley is very fertile and very good alfalfa and fruit land. It has been held as a Carey Act project, which I understand has been surrendered. I selected 40 acres adjoining the Irwin ranch to recommend for withdrawal for the use of Duckwater Indians. If water should be stored, it will become very valuable, and even now if the waste water which escapes from the Irwin ranch were properly handled, there would be sufficient to grow trees. This might be done as a start toward reclamation. I would refer to the files of the Reno Office for further information in regard to reclamation project alluded to and other matters effecting the interests of these Indians. Many thousands of dollars have been realized from the sale of fruits grown on this ranch which were marketed at the various mining camps in this section of Nevada. The climate is very mild and all fruits of the temperate regions grow in profusion . This ranch is 80 miles from Ely and 60 from Eureka.
