The Harvest Moon V&T Wine & History Train is a journey you won’t want to miss. Ride along in luxurious passenger cars pulled by a historic locomotive of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad. The train departs the station at 6:30 pm.
Your ticket includes a wine glass commemorating the event, two drink tokens, appetizers, and additional wine that can be purchased by the glass or the bottle.
We’ll be serving private label Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Moscato bottled for our friends at the Virginia City Tourism Commission. Vinted and bottled by Tijsseling Vineyards, Redwood Valley, California.
The train ride includes a historic talk as you travel along about the V&T Railroad and the Comstock Lode. A stop is scheduled at the Gold Hill Depot where you can depart to marvel at the Comstock Foundation’s first preservation and restoration project. The iconic Yellow Jacket mine hoisting works just across from the Gold Hill Depot. The project began in 2013, was completed in 2014 for just under $125,000.00, and is seen by tens of thousands annually.
Then all aboard as we head down the track to American Flat for another stop and history of the site past and present.
Headed back to the V&T Depot after that, enjoy the Harvest moon as it lights up the high desert night. Arriving back in Virginia City at about 9 pm.
All proceeds benefit the Comstock Foundation for History and Culture. Learn more about our mission and preservation projects at comstockfoundation.org.
