      The Spng Historical Society was orginized to preserve the heritage of the Narrow
      Gauge Lines of the Southern Pacific RR, with the primary emphasis on the Carson
      and Colorado, Nevada and Cal., and the SPNG line known as the Keeler Branch.
      Being that the V&T is the Parent RR of these lines we have included activities
      involving the V&T RR

      Hope to see some of you soon Dennis Burke
