109Re: LTRy&TCo and SP
- Feb 8, 2002Hi Ron,
Welcome to my world! ;) I've been researching this line for a number
of years now. Your best references (in addition to Myrick's Vol. 1
that Greg mentioned) are "Oil Lamps and Iron Ponies" by Shaw/Fisher/
Harlan; a 1946 article in Western Railroader by Owen McKeon; and for
photos, both volumes of E. B. Scott's "Saga of Lake Tahoe". There are
some tidbits here and there in other books, but these are the main
sources of published information about the railroad. One other
excellent source is the restoration study for the "Glenbrook", which
you should be able to access at the library of the Nevada State RR
If you need references for specific information, let me know and I'll
try to help.
