Railroads of Nevada and Eastern California: The southern roads

Front Cover
University of Nevada Press, 2007 - History - 933 pages

Valuable as these volumes are in relation to railroad operations in Nevada and California, their usefulness as authoritative reference sources embraces a much broader scope. Railroads of Nevada and Eastern California is as much a history of the region as it is a study of the railroads. The principal mines and mills and their production are scrupulously detailed, together with the personalities who created them.

The setting for Volume II is the varied and spectacular geography of southern Nevada and eastern California--from Death Valley and the Mojave Desert to the hard rock tunnels of Goldfield and the isolated communities of Rhyolite and Pioche. This volume also contains an index and an updated locomotive roster.
