The Virginia & Truckee Railroad was founded in 1868 to bring silver and gold from the Comstock mines to mills, and bring supplies back on the return trip. This 360 degree night panorama shows the V&T railroad yard in Virginia City, Nevada. The owner graciously gave us a tour of the yard including the workshop where the steam trains are lovingly restored, and the wooden car used in the opening scene of the Jim Jarmusch film Deadman (known as the “Depp car”).
