Title: Another Tank Car
Post by: Ted Miles on October 28, 2019, 08:57:57 PM
The Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad was at Nevada City, California until 1942. Today it is remembered by the Nevada County Railroad Museum. They had several tank cars. The #187 tank was used a local gas station after the railroad was abandoned in 1942. The museum built a new flat car for the tank about 20 years ago. Now another iron tank has turned up a few miles from the museum. A new Florence & Cripple Creek type flat car will now be built for the #185 tank.
