The Virginia and Truckee Railroad
"Queen of the Shortlines"

The Virginia and Truckee Railroad Company was incorporated in Nevada on March 5, 1868 by principals of the Union Mill and Mining Company and the Bank of California: Darius Ogden Mills, William Sharon, and William C. Ralston. The standard gauge railroad was conceived to provide more efficient and economical transportation between Comstock ore producing mines around Virginia City, quartz reduction mills along the Carson River below Dayton, and lumber yards located near Carson City. The initial twenty-one mile track between Carson City and Virginia City was completed in January of 1870 and the remaining thirty-one mile line was finished in 1872 between Carson City and the Central Pacific tracks in Reno.

At Carson City, the railroad built a massive complex of repair shops which serviced the needs of not only the V & T but also of hundreds of mines, mills, railroads, and small concerns throughout the west coast of the United States and Mexico. With headquarters at Carson City, Vice-President Henry M. Yerington directed the activities of the V & T and several dozen affiliated companies, including the 300-mile narrow gauge Carson and Colorado Railroad. V & T dividends also funded the establishment of Hawthorne, Nevada; lumbering operations at Lake Tahoe; the Columbus Wagon Road from Carson to Bodie; one of the country's first natural soda products plant at Owens Lake, California; and dozens of mines and mills at Aurora, Bodie, Candelaria, Hawthorne, Cerro Gordo, and Columbus. The last track construction took place during 1905-1906 when a line was built from Carson City to Minden in order to tap the fertile agricultural resources of the Carson Valley.

With the decline in Comstock mining activity and the influx of auto and truck competition, the Virginia and Truckee started a gradual decline during the early 1920s. The tracks between Carson and Virginia City were removed late in 1941. Each year from 1932 to 1949, the management of the V & T was forced to seriously consider total abandonment of the line in the face of continuing debt. On May 31, 1950, the V & T made its last scheduled run from Minden to Reno and the famous line has since become a legend as the "Queen of the Short Lines."

Company Name Collection Number

Scope and Content

The records of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad consist of 1,162 volumes, 209 boxes, 132 packages, and 251 drawings and maps. There were apparently no photographs donated with this collection, although there are photographs in the microfilmed V & T records at the Nevada State Museum/State Railroad Museum. The collection dates from 1860-1960; the bulk of the material was given to the Special Collections Department in 1952 by V & T vice president and general manager, Gordon A. Sampson. There are no restrictions on use of the collection except as noted in the section describing the drawings.

These records were divided into 20 series by Richard Datin who originally processed the collection. An additional series, number 21, was created when the maps and drawings were individually numbered and inventoried in December, 1990. Records of all but two subsidiary companies were for the most part removed from the V & T collection when it was originally processed. Those records were accessioned and cataloged separately as noted on the previous page, although there are references to subsidiary companies mentioned on the V & T index cards. In addition, a small collection of material about the V & T was donated by Gordon Sampson and accessioned as collection NC446. A third collection was acquired in 1993; see "Land Transfer Documents" which follows.

The collection also contains materials on microfilm or on loan from other institutions. Fifty volumes of field survey notebooks compiled during the Valuation Survey, 1915-1922, are on indefinite loan from the Nevada State Highway Department. Fifty volumes and 5 boxes of materials which were on indefinite loan from the Nevada State Museum were returned to the Museum. Subsequently those materials were microfilmed for the Special Collections Department and the originals transferred to the Nevada State Railroad Museum. The microfilmed records include minutes, bylaws, some financial files, correspondence, drawings, and photographs. Included is material on tracks, spurs, trestles, rolling stock, and buildings; land titles and rights of way; Gordon Sampson's valuation surveys; letters to and from Duncan A. McLeod (proxy holder for shares of V & T stock held by the estates of Ogden Mills, Elizabeth Mills Reid, and Ogden Livingston Mills; and for Gladys Phipps); and receivership and abandonment records. For a more detailed explanation of film contents, see Appendix A, "Microfilmed Records."

The collection is incredibly rich, as one might expect from its large size. These records document not only the railroad itself but the larger context of Nevada history and its subfields:
mining; the Comstock Lode; development of Carson City, Virginia City, the Carson Valley, and Reno; water use and development; timber use; development of roads; economic resources of Lake Tahoe; economics; and politics.

The collection contains administrative records, including correspondence, Board of Director's minutes, and reports; legal records such as stock certificates, deeds, abstracts of title, and other land records; and financial records including ledgers, journals, day books, reports, earnings statements, invoices, vouchers, payrolls, and operating expenses. Roadways, structures, equipment, and day-to-day operations are documented in several series. Two subsidiary interests are detailed in Series 17, the Mid-Pacific Railroad and Series 20, the Virginia-Truckee Transit Company and on several rolls of microfilm. One series contains clippings and correspondence which describe the death of the railroad, as do microfilm rolls 3 and 19. Especially interesting is box 150, which contains a history of all the main line, spurs, and sidings, including dates of construction and length as compiled by W. H. Kirk in 1919.

There are several major collections of V & T records in other repositories in Nevada and California. They include:

Nevada State Railroad Museum. Records, 1868-1951. 121 vols., 5 boxes and 3 packages.

Nevada Historical Society. Records, 1874-1949. 10 cubic feet. Also, Carson and Colorado Railroad, and Southern Pacific Railroad Company Records, 10 cubic feet.

The Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley. Records, 1872-1950. 17 cartons and 34 oversize packages (collection PG 231) which include records of the Carson and Colorado Railroad, 1880-1900. Also, Yerington Papers, PG230. 1869-1910. 46 vols., 4 cartons, and 1 box. These papers include records of the many subsidiary companies in Nevada and eastern California in which Yerington had a financial interest. A copy of the guide to the Bancroft's collection is available in the Special Collections V & T source file; please ask at the Special Collections reference desk.

The Huntington Library, San Marino, California. Records, 1868-1950. 9 vols. and 14 boxes. A copy of the guide to the Huntington's collection is available in the Special Collections V & T source file; please ask at the Special Collections reference desk.

California State Railroad Museum Library. Records, 1869-1950. 30 cubic feet. Note: the museum archivist reports that these records are scattered in amongst other collections and that there is not one "V & T Collection" per se.

Land Transfer Documents

This accession, acquired in April, 1993, includes deeds, leases, rights-of-way, agreements, and indentures for property acquired by the V & T, and for property and rights-of-way leased, rented, or sold by the V & T to local and state governments, public utilities, and businesses. The accession consists of 4 cubic feet of materials, plus 3 volumes and 30 maps, and dates from 1860-1960. There are no restrictions on use of the accession. The material is an addition to Series 6 and is housed in boxes 211-214.

The bulk of the acquisition, approximately 3.5 cu. ft., consists of records of property ownership. The arrangement of these documents was based on the massive property valuation survey conducted by the company in 1916. The survey, which follows the V & T's rail line routes, was divided into 2 parts: valuation survey 1 (V-1) ran from Reno south to Carson City, then east to Virginia City; valuation survey 2 (V-2), extended from Carson City south to the terminus at Minden. Each survey part was subdivided into numbered segments ( , , etc). An "S" in front of the segment number indicated survey segments which contained a station; S-1 = Reno, S-9 = Carson City, S-14 = Virginia City, etc. Within individual segments, parcels owned by the V & T (or leased or under right-of-way) were also numbered.

At some point in time, probably at the time of the survey, the V & T's property conveyance records were numbered to correspond with the survey and parcel numbers. They were folded and inserted into business envelopes, which were also numbered. Additional notes were included, either on the envelope or on yellow legal paper. Typical notations were references to other deeds, to missing documents, or to information from the County Recorder's records used to substantiate ownership.

For many years after abandonment of the company these property transfer documents were stored in several large metal boxes. Before and after that period their arrangement was subject to disruption from company employees and the curious. The manuscript curator of the Special Collections Department reconstructed the original arrangement as much as possible but was somewhat hampered by loose documents which had been removed from their original envelopes and not refiled. In such instances it was possible to identify the correct valuation segment, but not the parcel number of a particular piece of property. Documents without parcel numbers were filed at the end of the appropriate valuation segment and identified with square brackets [ ]. All original envelopes have been retained.

This acquisition includes a small number of records of the sale, lease, and transfer of rights-of-way made by the V & T to local and
state governments, public utilities, and businesses. They follow the records described above (box 213) and are in no particular order.

Accompanying this accession was a bound set of 1 paper and 29 linen maps, numbered with valuation survey, segment, and parcel numbers. Many of the maps include charts listing names of grantees and grantors of parcels in individual segments and acquisition dates. Additions and corrections have been added by company officials since the maps were compiled in 1916. The maps have been given the accession numbers NC427/21/4/64-93 and are stored in the manuscript map case.

 

The following miscellaneous items conclude the acquisition:

 

A notebook compiled by Chief Engineer W.H. Kirk contains the following:

 

Letter from Kirk to Mr. Mills asking permission to continue working past retirement age. 1936.

 

Three miscellaneous volumes came with this collection. They were assigned volume numbers to correspond with previously acquired books:

How to Use the V & T Collection

There are two finding aids for the V & T collection: this guide and two card file drawers kept in the staff room of the Special Collections Department.

A researcher unfamiliar with the Virginia and Truckee records should first consult the collection guide. The guide provides a general description of how the collection is arranged, citing the series names and numbers, and listing individual boxes and volumes for each series. Listings are also provided enumerating oversize materials from each series which are stored flat on shelves within the V & T collection storage area, and maps and drawings which are housed in mapcase drawers.

Once the researcher identifies which boxes may have useful material, they should consult the card index. These cards contain a fairly itemized and interesting list of the contents of each box and are arranged in box number order. Researchers are advised because of the unique nature of the collection's arrangement to consult boxes of correspondence of invididual company officials when tracking topics such as those found in Series 6-10. For example, the letters in Box 12 from J. L. Fautz pertain to freight and traffic, topics which are also part of Series 10.

Bound volumes in this collection were arranged separately from the loose, boxed documents and are described in the following pages. Each book was numbered, the number entered into the guide, and the volumes arranged on the shelves in numerical order with the rest of the collection.

At the end of 1990, all drawings and maps were flattened, including those which had previously been kept rolled in boxes 121A and 154A. The drawings and maps were arranged in five subseries: plans and drawings of rolling stock, plans and drawings of V & T structures and equipment, location maps, right of way maps, and charts of data. These were assigned to a new series number, NC427/21 and placed in the manuscript map case drawers. An item by item listing of those plans and maps appears at the end of this guide.

Also included in this guide is Appendix A which lists the contents of the 19 rolls of microfilm of the Nevada State Museum/State Railroad Museum V & T records.

427/21/4/1-93 Right-of-Way Maps.

These right-of-way maps consist of a master set of maps on linen, dated December 31, 1916, showing the railroad's property along the main track from Reno to Virginia City, and the Minden branch from Carson City to Minden. These maps are numbered NC427/21/4/34-61 and are stored in the vault of the Special Collections Department. A complete set of blueline copies (also numbered NC427/21/4/34-61) are available for use in the Department. Because of the fragile nature of the original linen maps the Special Collections Department will not make copies of these maps. However, copies may be obtained at a cost of approximately $5.00 per sheet from:

Jan Christopherson
Nevada Highway Department

Virginia and Truckee Railroad Records
Microfilmed Records

The following represents the contents of boxes 1-5 of the V & T records which had been on loan from and were subsequently returned to the Nevada State Museum. These records were microfilmed by either Fred Gale or Robert Armstrong in 1965; later the Museum transferred them to the Nevada State Railroad Museum. The roll numbers have been added arbitrarily since none of the microfilms were originally numbered.
