Nevada Southern Railway Reopens to Public

The Nevada Southern Railway train is up and running again as of May 8, 2021. There are four scheduled runs per Saturday and Sunday at 10:00AM, 12:00PM, 2:00PM and 4:00PM. These times do change with the hotter weather. You must arrive at the depot at least 20 minutes prior to departure time and there currently are no pre-sales on tickets; you purchase your tickets the day of your ride. The cost for Adults (12 and older) is $10, Children 4-11 are $5 and Children under 3 are free. Prices may change for special train rides.

Important considerations to note are there are no food or beverages (besides water) allowed on the trains. Additionally, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) still requires masks on the train platforms and social distancing minimums must be observed.

The Railroad Maintenance Yard was constructed in Boulder City in 1996. A passenger platform was built in 2000. There are a number of locomotives and train equipment present at the yard, including four fully operational locomotives. Some of the equipment has been acquired via purchase by the State of Nevada, while other apparatus were donated to the museum. The equipment is refurbished by the State, using public funds and private donations. Additionally, there are many, many volunteer hours that have been used to bring the trains to functional status.

Take a ride on the train and transport yourself back in time to the early days of travel to Boulder City. It’s an adventure you don’t want to miss!
