Virginia & Truckee Railroad McKeen Motor Car No. 22. This unique self-propelled train car was built in 1910 by the McKeen Motor Car Company of Omaha, Nebraska. It had a very sleek, streamlined look for it's day, including a wind resistant front nose. Sold for scrap in 1946, for many years the body was part of a local plumbing store in Carson City. It has recently been restored to its former glory.
