Abandoned Enginehouse?

Postby Trainlover479 » Tue Feb 18, 2014 8:31 pm

I was on google maps today looking at the Nevada Northern's tracks between Cherry Creek, NV. to Currie, NV. Roughly in the middle is what looks like the remains of an abandoned Nevada northern engine-house. Copy and paste these coordinates on Google maps to see for yourself: (40.17118,-114.707111) Anyone know anything about it?

The northern part of the NN was leased to S&S Shortline, an outfit that was basicly a railcar storage facilty,
used a 45 tonner #4501 as power,unknown if still operating/active.
There's a wye at Currie.
The NN mainline Currie-Mcgill Jct is "reported' Out of Service.

Those coordinates are in the middle of the Pacific ocean.
