Last year I was able to pick up a photo taken by a traveler through
Nevada in 1938. It apparently came from a family album of a trip from
Wisconsin to California and return.
I have posted a scan of this photo to the photo section of the Yahoo
site for this email group. It shows the Hyman-Michaels gas locomotive
scrapping out the Nevada Central.
Reportedly the family caption of the photo was "A narrow gauge Train
that has operated for 50 years out of Wells Nevada to some mines and
mining towns in Nevada. On its last run. The road was being discontinued
