Bristlecone Bricks & Train Show – Ely

June 25, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - June 26, 2021 @ 8:00 pm

The Bristlecone Bricks and Train Show is coming to Ely, as the first of many annual shows to come. As a a community event you are invited to view displays from fans of LEGO bricks and Model Railroad Groups, built by individuals and clubs. Hundreds of square feet of model railroad displays and complementary layouts containing thousands of LEGO bricks, will amaze you and your children.

Creations and layouts and displays from kids and kid-at-heart adults will thrill your eyes, while the ghosts of history inspire your heart and mind. This year’s event will feature activities for the kids, through our partners: the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows, the Nevada State Railroad Museum and the White Pine 4H.

The event will be held at one of the most historic, scenic and interesting venues possible: the Northern Nevada Railway Museum. Situated in the middle of the century-old Nevada Northern Railway’s working railyard, you will hear and see the vintage steam and diesel locomotives pulling their loaded cars, as they pass within feet of the displays. Explore the machinist shop, train barn and museum offices, just a short stroll from the show. Come play and display with us.

Bring the family. Ride the rails at the Nevada Northern Railway. Hear the ghost stories and memories of the wild west. Explore all the beauty, excitement, wide open spaces and history of the Great Basin’s untrammeled wilderness.

Show admission is free! Riding the train, and other activates listed are not part of the Bristlecone Bricks and Train show and may charge fees. They are listed to help you create a full, fun itinerary for the day or weekend.
