From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nevada Southern Railroad Museum is a railroad museum in Boulder City, Nevada operated by the Nevada Department of Cultural Affairs.

The museum functions as a branch of the Nevada State Railroad Museum and is located on the tracks that were installed to support construction activities at the Hoover Dam.[1] The state obtained the tracks and right of way from the Union Pacific Railroad in 1985.

Heritage railroad

The museum operates a heritage railroad which offers passenger excursion trains using historic railroad equipment on a 7-mile, 45 minute round trip. Operations began in 2002 and the museum also offers the opportunity for passengers to ride in the locomotive cab and to operate trains.[2] For serious railfans, this ride features a preserved former Union Pacific EMD GP30, number 844, which at one time necessitated the renumbering of steamer Union Pacific 844 to Union Pacific 8444.[3]
