Virginia & Truckee 18 "Dayton" painted as Union Pacific "119" - East Los Angeles, CA - 2/70         
Virginia & Truckee 4-4-0 18 "Dayton" as painted to represent Union Pacific 119. Built by Central Pacific in 1873, V&T 18 operated in limited service late in its career, and was out of service in January 1938. Sold to Paramount Studios in 1937, the engine was used in the film "Union Pacific." Loaned to the UP for their Golden Spike Centennial Train in 1969 (as seen here). This locomotive subsequently ended up at the Nevada State Railroad Museum, where it was restored to its 1882 appearance.
