A railroad museum that offers train rides on weekends at 10AM, 11:30AM, 1PM, and 2:30PM (except July and August); You may also ride in our caboose and in the cab of the locomotive (some restrictions). The ride lasts approximately 40 minutes and runs from Boulder City to Railroad Pass and return. There are other engines and equipment on static display around our pavilion. There is also a model railroad car with Lionel and HO gauge equipment running. There is also a 7.5" gauge (1/8 scale) scale railroad with approximately 2500 ft of track that operates on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. We also have StoryTime trains for kids of all ages on the 3rd Saturday of the month. During December we run Santa Train and Pajama Train, call for more information on all trains.

The train runs Saturdays and Sundays and is definitely worth the time if you like trains and history. The staff are very friendly and genuinely enjoy being there. Great for kids and adults!
