The Nevada and Oregon Railroad was an American narrow gauge railroad that operated from Reno, Nevada then northwest to the California state line near present day Hallelujah Junction. A portion of the route is part of today's Union Pacific Railroad branch connecting their Feather River mainline with Reno. The Nevada & Oregon was incorporated on June 5, 1880 and was headquartered at Reno. It was sold to the Moran Brothers, a group of New York investors, at foreclosure in 1884 and operated unofficially as the Nevada and California Railroad. In 1893 the Moran Brothers sold the railroad and it was reorganized as the Nevada-California-Oregon Railway.
Western Nevada Railroad
The railroad traces its history back to December 12, 1879 when the Western Nevada Railroad was incorporated east of Reno at Wadsworth. The Western Nevada proposed to build from Walker Lake (near Hawthorne) to the mining town of Bodie, California. No tracks were constructed on the line. Within six months the project was abandoned and the Nevada & Oregon Railroad was incorporated in Reno in place of the Western Nevada Railroad.
