In 1904 the Southern Pacific Railroad, successor to the Central Pacific, completed the Lucin Cutoff across the Great Salt Lake. The new route bypassed Terrace, and the tracks through town became a little-used branchline. The railroad closed its facilities at Terrace, moving the division point to Montello, Nevada. The railroad line through Terrace was finally abandoned in 1942. Many of Terrace's houses and buildings were moved to Montello, and some remain there today.
