Turn back time with a ride on the V&T Railroad from Carson City to Virginia City. This train ride is a fully narrated excursion loaded with 1970's Comstock Era history. Travel the scenic route through the Virginia Range and see American Flat - site of a once-bustling mining town, scale/water stop where 260,000 tons of ore valued at billions of dollars were weighed and possible wild mustang sightings. This little railway has been seen on over 200 films and TV shows. Spend the afternoon in Virginia City enjoying the history, shops, museums, restaurants and saloons. In its heyday, Virginia City was "the place" for arts and culture. It boasted visiting celebrities, Shakespearean theater and two newspapers (one of which is where Mark Twain began his famous writing career).
