Historic 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.
