Nevada Northern Railway
Location: Ely, Nevada
Join us for a trip back in time when the iron horse ruled the rails. Today, the Nevada Northern Railway is the last of its kind - the sole survivor from a grand era of railroading in the Silver State. Now a National Historic Landmark, it is America's best preserved short-line railroad and most complete rail facility still in existence. The Nevada Northern Railway is a living, breathing, operating historic railroad.
Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
Location: Durango, Colorado
This historic train has been in continuous operation between Durango and Silverton since 1882, carrying passengers behind vintage steam locomotives and rolling stock indigenous to the line. Relive the sights and sounds of yesteryear for a spectacular journey on board the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
Heber Valley Railroad
Location: Heber, Utah
The Heber Valley Historic Railroad’s history began in 1899, when trains served the pioneers who first settled the valley. In the early 1970′s, the railroad became the Heber Creeper, a tourist passenger train operating on a seasonal basis. We now operate as an independent agency of the State of Utah, essentially a non-profit organization focused on tourism, education and the restoration of historical railroad equipment.
Golden Spike Monument
Location: Promontory Point, Utah
There isn't technically a train ride at this historic spot, but they do run two replicas of Americas most famous locomotives, the Union Pacific #119, and the CP Jupiter. The trains are run out face to face, and then back to their storage shed once a day. There is also a museum with tons of neat artifacts, an auditorium with an entertaining movie about the history of the spot, and a gift shop. A great place for any train lover to visit.
