Track for the Nevada Northern Railway was laid over a century ago, connecting one of the largest copper mines in North America to the transcontinental route to the north. Several of the original steam locomotives delivered new to the railroad over a century ago are still in operation. It is the best-preserved standard-gauge short-line in North America.
Come experience a 90-minute excursion back into the early 20th century: take the train. Walk around and throughout the 1906 maintenance shops and train yard, even run a locomotive. Take photographs, have fun and gather memories with us.
