Remarks & Notes 
Bound for Reno. Well, the tracks no longer go there, but V&T #22 "Inyo" and Coach 4 are definitely headed in the right direction as they begin a run-by for the cameras on a February morning. Astute observers will note that the museum tracks are dual-gauged, allowing operations with both standard and 36" narrow gauge equipment. While all of the surviving V&T equipment is standard gauge, the little wood-burner "Glenbrook" is narrow gauge and she is used quite frequently on steam weekends at the NSRM. In addition, the museum's trackage was also designed to accommodate another Nevada native, narrow-gauge steamer, "Eureka" which visits occasionally. "Eureka" is owned by Las Vegas Attorney, Dan Markoff, who is a good friend of the Nevada State Railroad Museum.
