Welcome to the Nevada State Railroad Museum -
Boulder City & The Nevada Southern Railway

Come ride the Nevada Southern Railway excursion train at the Nevada State Railroad Museum. We are located in historic Boulder City, Nevada; the city that built the Hoover Dam.

Ride the rails and experience history dating back to the 1930's - the time this Boulder Branch Line was con- structed by the Union Pacific Railroad to service the Boulder Dam project. Ride in your choice of an open air car or air conditioned/heated Pullman coaches. We are wheelchair accessible. Also available on select weekends are model railroad displays and 7½" gauge trains that you can ride!

Hope to see you soon!
