An historical account of the iconic T&T (1907-1940), the epitome of desert railroading. This line was originally built by Francis Marion Smith of the famed Twenty Mule Team operations to haul his wealth of borax from the depths of Death Valley, California. It also served as a connecting line to the gold and silver mines of southern Nevada and in later times thrived as a shipper of talc and clay.
Included in this title is information about other Death Valley railroads including the 'baby gauge' railroads at Ryan, as well as the Bullfrog Goldfield; Las Vegas & Tonopah; Tecopa, Borate & Dagget; and the Ludlow & Southern.
