Thanks, agnesrob, lleechef and Ann.
 
FriedClamFanatic, it does sound like fun. I think it would be neat to stay in a caboose! Out here, you can stay on the steamship Queen Mary. The rooms are small which is what it was like in the Queen's heyday, but it does allow you to eat in some good restaurants and see what it was like during the time the Queen was traveling across the Atlantic.

    Great report, thank you (especially for the photos).  I really enjoyed that area (Reno, Tahoe, Truckee) when I was out there in 2008.  I'm a big CFS fan, but I like it true Texas/Oklahoma style without sausage in the gravy.

      I agree, Ram4. Neither Jax' or Cracker Box's CFS had sausage in the gravy. I've really seen very few places that have sausage, except on biscuits.

        Awesome trip report -- the food looks fantastic. But I have to play train nerd and note that the V&T's Inyo was built in 1875, not 1895

            I noticed that, too...but didn't want to embarrass you or blemish an otherwise fantastic report.

                  Thanks, Pancho. I called yesterday to verify a few facts before I finished the review and talked with Jerry, the owner. It made me even happier about choosing them-----he is a true gentleman and passionate about keeping the spirit of the place true to what he started doing. A nice guy too!

                    Hey Ed,
                    Did you ever come across a place in Truckee called Burger Me! ?  I just saw it on DDDs on the Food Network.  WOW!  The burgers looked fantastic!

                        Ed, while I have no desire to move back out West, I would like to very much check out those parts of California, and areas outside Vegas in Nevada. I've actually got a list now. Whether this happens is another matter, but as long as I've got REAL pictures to show my other half, that might be all that's needed. He's never seen the West.

                          I can't believe that I missed this great report when you first posted it.....................but I am glad that I did because I could read the entire report at one time and that is what I like!

                            You really capture the full flavor of each stop with your great photographs!  Great work!  I love the mix of colors, people, food and everything in between.
                            Now that you got the trains and automobiles, we just need the planes!  Maybe the Reno Air Races!
                            Looking forward to catching up in Cinci...

                                  Do you think that boat is big enough for just you and I?
