A detail of two of the six driver wheels on Virginia & Truckee Railroad No. 13 "Empire" at the California State Railroad Museum, Sacramento, CA, July 2022.
In service in and around Reno / Carson City from 1873 to 1931, as with most engines with that long a life it was owned by several railroads and given different number designations. For example, when converted from wood to oil in 1910, crews complained about number 13 being unlucky, so it was renumbered as Virigina & Truckee Second No 15.
Since 1981, the engine has been in the California State Railroad Museum displayed surrounded with mirrors so you can see the exquisite workmanship and details of this classic machine.
