photo of 1st Carson & Colorado train crossing from Nevada
into California. The stateline at that time was the old
von Schmidt boundary line, which was abandoned in favor
of a new survey in 1892, which is still the recognized stateline
by the two states. Today's boundary is about 1/3 mile southwest
of the boundary post shown in the photo, the base of which
can still be seen today by walking the grade into Nevada.
