The Truckee in V&T

Looking at an early Central Pacific map of the projected line east of the California line, I spotted a location called "Truckee Station" located roughly where Sparks is today. I suspect this may have been the "Truckee" in the original V&T name. The map is in the California State Archives, and several copies are at CSRM.
