Virginia & Truckee Steam Locomotive, institutional title; more likely, Central Pacific

V&T steam locomotive
Early portrait of the locomotive Pluto, built in 1868, with 59 on the sand dome. The engineer leans out of the cab, the fireman stands on the tender next to the locomotive, and another worker stands on the right. The line is assuredly the Central Pacific. In the 1870s, Central Pacific locomotives sometimes operated on the V&T.
