Track Plans

From: "Erik Beyer"

I was raised in Carlin, Nevada and my father worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad. I am working on an HO gauge model railroad layout and would like to model three sections of the Southern Pacific tracks.

I am interested in the Carlin, Nevada yard, the tracks through Palisade and the rock quarry in Palisade, Nevada and the area of the Reno, Nevada yard where the Virginia/Truckee Railroad tracks came together with the Southern Pacific tracks. I am not able to find any plans of any of the rails between Ogden, Utah and Sacramento, California.

Can you be of any assistance in locating the track plans for these three locations?
