You, Becoming an Important Part of Railway History

Without your help and support the Nevada Northern Railway would be just a memory with a bit of overgrown, abandoned roadbed. Together, you, and the rest of the world-wide community that cares, have pitched in to make it "The most authentic, and best cared-for" railroad on the continent.

How the Museum Operates

As an independent, non-profit 501(c) historic foundation, the mission of preserving what is one of the last real American short-line railroads is on all of our shoulders.

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.

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?
