Hollywood's Railroads Volume One: Virginia & Truckee


Hollywood's Railroads is a new series of softcover books about railroads and locomotives used by Hollywood studios in motion pictures and television shows. Six volumes are planned. Each 72-page book is 8.5 by 11 inches, printed on high gloss paper with high resolution photos. While it is a series of books, each volume is a complete story.

Volume One: Virginia & Truckee is now available. It covers the four locomotives from Nevada's Virginia & Truckee Railroad – No. 11, No. 18, No. 22, and No. 25 – that were purchased by Hollywood studios between 1937 and 1947. These locomotives 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 No. 5, No. 26, and No. 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.
