Night Photography: Virginia and Truckee Railroad 360 Degree Panorama

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 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. We got to check out the wooden car used in the opening scene of the Jim Jarmusch film Deadman, which is colloquially referred to as the "Depp car". Find out more about visiting Virginia City, and taking a ride on the historic V&T.
