Those who lived in the days of glitter and bustle of Virginia City during the hectic days of the Comstock Lode have been gone for decades. Even those who rode the train to Virginia City as youngsters are vanishing. Ted Wurm and Harre Demoro, well-qualified railroad scholars, add this personal touch to this well-rounded story of the V&T which bring out little-known facts of the railroad’s history.” – David F.
