No hazards 1930's western Nevada
In the 1860s and 1870s, the venerable Virginia and Truckee Railroad of western Nevada was built to serve the mines and mills of the Comstock Lode, the largest silver deposit discovered in the United States. By the 1930's, the glory days of mining around the once cosmopolitan Viginia City were fading fast and the former V&T mainline to Virgina City was now a lightly used branchline.

This small "California" garage layout is contained in a special room and is 100% sceniced. The layout features dozens of scratchbuilt and kit-bashed buildings and mines depicting Virginia City and Gold Hill, Nevada. Most of the scenic ground material was also collected from the Virginia City area. The layout was built by myself and Mark Cook specifically for the NMRA National Convention in 2000.
