Railway Track Expansion In Progress

OK…sing it with me….”They’re a-working-on-the-railroad…all-the-live-long-day….”

Sorry, couldn’t help it when we saw these photos shared with us by Southern Nevada Railway Museum Director, Randy Hees.

In case you’ve wondered about the two bridges that cross over Interstate-11 on it’s approach into Boulder City, well one of those will be an expansion of the railway track into parts of Henderson.

Which will eventually mean that the current ride you can take on the train from our historic Railway Museum will expand. How far it will go though, is still up in the air. It depends upon what happens when they connect to the Union Pacific line and what gets negotiated between these two parties.

But for now, we thought you’d like the sneak-peak on what’s happening up there, and a look at this rough schematic below.
