The Lionel Operating Train Society is proud to announce the newest addition to the LOTS line-up of cars - a
Virginia & Truckee Railroad "Carson City" Mint Car!
The V&T was built to serve the Comstock Lode mining communities of northwestern Nevada. During its height of service, the railroad's route ran from Reno south to Carson City, Nevada. In Carson City, the mainline split into two branches. One branch continued south to Minden, while the other branch traveled east to Virginia City. The first section from Virginia City to Carson City was constructed commencing in 1869 to haul ore, lumber and supplies for the Comstock Lode. The Carson City Mint was a branch of the United States Mint in Carson City, Nevada. The mint was established in Carson City to facilitate minting of silver coins from silver in the Comstock Lode. 50 issues of silver coins and 57 issues of gold coins minted here between 1870 and 1893 bore the "CC" mint mark.
LOTS is excited to commemorate this time in Nevada's history by offering a traditional Lionel Mint car featuring striking graphics, die-cast metal trucks, operating couplers, operates on 0-27 curves, and is 10 1/4" in length.
The LOTS V&T "Carson City" Mint Car is sure to be a cherished addition to your collection and operating railroads.
