Even though the railroad became the predominant mode of travel by the late 19th century, rails often only connected major towns and centers of commerce and industry in Nevada. Getting to smaller communities or towns not yet connected by rail required a tiresome overland journey by stagecoach. This 5/8 scale replica of a Wells Fargo stagecoach demonstrates the limited amount of freight and passengers that could be carried over roads, and why railroads were necessary for the transport of goods and materials.
