V&T Operator Being Sold

The Nevada Appeal reports (twice, in fact) that the Sierra Railroad, the company that was chosen to be the operator for the new V&T line between Carson and Virginia, is in the process of being sold. And that the new prospective owner, Patriot Rail Corp, has no interest in providing passenger or tourist operations. If this is true, the V&T is kind of left in the lurch with lots of brand-new track and no one to run trains on it.

Now if only there was another option, another operator available, preferably one based locally, like in Virginia City, that could take over running trains on the new tracks. We’d probably never find anyone like that
