Nevada State Railroad Museum
Lerro Productions Presents:
The Nevada State Railroad Museum
Carson City, NV
February 10, 2020
We have been given a unique opportunity to photograph two live steam locomotives at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in February. For our photo shoot, we will have both the “Inyo” and the Virginia & Truckee #25 fired up and they will pull several different consists around the museum grounds throughout the day. We will also have the “Dayton” and the “Glenbrook” pulled out cold for static photos. The photo shoot will include a morning session, afternoon session and a night session. There is an active turntable, depot, water tower and a couple of crossings to work with. We’ll also have reenactors to help create turn of the century scenes.
The 4-4-0 “Inyo” was built in 1875 for the Virginia & Truckee Railroad. It was retired from regular service in 1926 but then appeared in several movies in the 1930s-1950s.
The 4-6-0 Virginia & Truckee #25 was built in 1905 and was in regular service until 1938. In the 1940s, the locomotive was assigned to motion picture duty for RKO Pictures. In the 1970s, the locomotive found its way to the Nevada State Railroad Museum collection where it resides today.
“Dayton” – The 4-4-0 “Dayton” was built in 1873 and was in regular service for over 60 years on the Virginia & Truckee. After regular service, it served as a Hollywood engine as well as served time at the Golden Spike Park. In the 1970s, it was moved to Carson City. In 2005, was parked in Virginia City and was then moved back to Carson City in 2018. The Dayton will look great sitting next to the Inyo.
“Glenbrook” – The 2-6-0 “Glenbrook” was built in 1875 for the Carson and Tahoe Lumber and Fluming Company’s 3-foot narrow gauge railroad. It ran there until 1937 and was sold to the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad. In 1942, it was given to the Nevada State Railroad Museum. In 2015, the “Glenbrook” was restored to operating service.
