I have been visiting and enjoying the NNRR since 1971 when I was a graduate student at UNR. Many times in the past, I would just wander around the yard and go into the machine shop and other buildings which were always open back then. Once in a while I would run into someone working there who would always be friendly and informative. Warm, fuzzy memories! Great job on the slideshow.
Thanks for sharing this!  We will pass your comments along to the entire staff.

One of the best railroad websites I've seen. I became a member recently and hope to get out there this year. Hope to spend a week. I've run steam in Poland and this is similar to Wolstyn operation.
