Our museum membership program was established to preserve the historical character of the Nevada Northern Railway facilities and railroad equipment. In January 1992, the Nevada Northern Railway Membership Fund was established to provide direct financial support from its members. The fund has been instrumental in the rehabilitation of the railroad complex by not only providing direct funding, but as the seed for match grants.
In September 2006, the Nevada Northern Railway complex at East Ely was designated a National Historic Landmark. This was an earmark achievement for the museum. With it comes an increased responsibility for stewardship of the property, but, unfortunately, no direct general funding from state or national resources. It remains up to the members at all levels to sustain the Nevada Northern operations, now and into the future.
Your membership is vital to keep the museum in operation. Will you join the thousands of railfans and historians around the world in this cause? You can join or renew today by selecting a membership below. It only takes a few minutes.
