Notes:

This book covers the four locomotives from Nevada's Virginia & Truckee Railroad, #11, #18, #22, and #25. These were purchased by Hollywood studios between 1937 and 1947. They were used in more than 150 motion pictures and television shows between 1937 and the present. Three of them are now fully restored to their historic appearances at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City. The fourth is still a prized possession of Old Tucson Studios in Arizona. Also included in the book are the movies that were made on the V&T, circa 1948-1950, with locomotives #5, #26, and #27. This volume includes a list of motion pictures that used these trains and 117 photographs (with 15 in color) that show various trains and film companies in action.
