Water Tunnels East of Wadsworth, Nevada

From: "Larry Hersh"

I read in George Kraus's book on page 203, balance of first paragraph, a sentence about "tunnels" being bored into the hills by the Central Pacific east of Wadsworth, Nevada, to provide a water source for the RR.

I presume his information came from the then Southern Pacific Archives or perhaps another source?

I would like to find more info regarding the "Tunnels," whereas I have been looking in the area ( I've lived in Fernley for the past 4 years) to no avail. Perhaps the tunnels were bored somewhere between Wadsworth and Lovelock, Nevada?
