Presentation: Stephen Drew – Hollywood and the V&T

Don’t miss famed Virginia & Truckee Railroad Historian Stephen Drew’s presentation titled, “Casting Call: Re-creating Promontory? Call the V&T!” Major motion picture studios and their movies, pageants from coast-to-coast, and television productions have consistently relieved on V&T equipment to depict the “wedding of the rails” story at least 10 times in the past six decades (1939-2005). Drew’s presentation will feature NSRM’s V&T collection prominently in the talk and will include the largest surviving artifact from Promontory which has continuously been overlooked: V&T Coach No. 17.

Admission is $6 for adults and free for ages 17 and under, Friends of NSRM Members, and NSRM Volunteers. No reservations required. For more information please contact Adam Michalski at amichalski@nevadaculture.org or (775) 687-6953 x224.
