Nevada State Railroad Museum 

locomotiveThe Nevada State Railroad Museum preserves the railroad heritage of Nevada, including locomotives and cars of the famous Virginia & Truckee Railroad and other railroads of the Silver State. Many were bought from Hollywood studios, where they were made famous in movies and television shows.

Among 65 locomotives and cars in the collection, 40 were built before 1900, and 31 pieces operated on the V&T Railroad. Museum activities consist of operation of historic railroad equipment, including train rides, handcar rides, lectures, an annual railroad symposium, changing exhibits, and a variety of special events.

The Museum also has an ongoing research and restoration program.
