Also see . . .  Carson & Colorado Railway: Slim Princess Promotional. In the early 1880's, the Carson and Colorado Railroad operated narrow gauge steam-powered Baldwin locomotives in Western Nevada and Eastern California. The Carson and Colorado line was absorbed into the Southern Pacific system in 1900. This narrow gauge branch line remained exclusively steam powered until 1955. SP Narrow Gauge Engine #18, a 1911 Baldwin 4-6-0, has been on static display in Independence since her 1955 retirement date.
