Description
These records include an accounts payable ledger which records expenses incurred by the Nevada Copper Belt Railroad Company during its construction from 1909 to 1911 and a daily report of train and engine movements for July 1925.
Background
The Nevada Copper Belt Railroad Company was a 41-mile road in Lyon County, Nevada incorporated in 1909 primarily to haul freight and copper from the Ludwig Mines to a smelter near Wabuska. It also carried mail, passeners and other freight. Grading on the road began in September of 1909 and was completed in October of 1911. Passenger service terminated in 1945 and the entire line was abandoned in 1947 because of a shortage of copper and gypsum.
