On July 23, 2010 we took a short trip on the Virginia and Truckee Railway to Gold Hill and back. It was well worth the trip to see the old mine workings from one of the largest gold strikes in history called the Comstock Lode.
Incredible views of the desert mountain scapes, old mining tailings, equipment, and buildings dot route from Virginia City to Gold Hill. Travel back in time to the 1800s on this railway experience.
Enjoy the video. It was taken on a small Olympus digital camera. The background music is from a group called The Boys from Joe Denny’s Saloon.
