A Party on the V & T Train...

Embracing the 'presence vs presents' ideology, we all gathered in Carson City for the V & T's Toast of the Canyon Wine Tasting Train. The boys and their gals wanted to celebrate Grandma's birthday in style.

Enjoy wine and appetizers as you travel on a 45-minute trip south of the Carson City Depot into the Carson River Canyon. Glimpse a part of the route not seen every day. The track winds past scenic views of the river and the canyon walls. Bring your cameras, as there will be opportunities to photograph the "Iron Horse" as it steams by the passenger cars to re-attach to the train to pull it back up out of the canyon. Listen as the engineer blows the whistle and the echoes bounce off the canyon walls.
How awesome to party in history in car No. 101, the ex-Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad coach, built by the Pullman Company in 1914.

A plethora of sounds were heard, from the piercing note of a horn, to the roar of the engine, to the click-clack of the wheels on the joints in the rail to the squeal of steel wheel on steel rail, there were numerous sounds heard, most importantly- all of us laughing.

“I like trains. I like their rhythm,
and I like the freedom of being suspended between two places,
all anxieties of purpose taken care of:
for this moment I know where I am going.”
― Anna Funder
