Tonopah & Tidewater Scouting Expedition

By John Brabyn PhD
In January 2001 my daughter Jocelyn and I investigated some lesser-travelled segments of the Tonopah & Tidewater and its related railroads. We covered the Ludlow & Southern, the Tecopa Railroad and various segments of the T&T itself between Ludlow and Shoshone. In March 2001 I covered the segments north of Shoshone, including Eagle Mountain to Death Valley Junction and Beatty to Goldfield. In May 2001 I explored the competing Las Vegas and Tonopah RR route from Beatty to Bonnie Claire with seasoned desert explorer and amateur geologist Joe Maulhardt.

An Amargosa Journey

Abe's slowly covering the middle section of the T&T by exploring the path of the Amargosa River. This section is just a part of his many trips and covers the northern end of the Amargosa Canyon along the T&T roadbed.
