This is a fairly short ride ( approx. 40 minutes, round trip ) however, every foot is a train lovers delight. From the moment you depart until the arrival back at the station, every moment is filled with a delightful experience. All of the staff are volunteers and they do a fantastic job.Paul G.
When in Boulder City, take a ride on the Nevada Southern Railway. It is a short 35 minute ride in and out of town, but the scenery is incredible. Sit in the outside car of the weather is good. The staff have a lot of information about the area.Dave J.
A family member recently had a wedding here at this venue. Such a unique location for a wedding to be held and such a great experience. We even got to ride on the train with a bar car on board, a section for dessert and plenty of seating throughout. It’s was fun walking through the different train cars. Not to forget our conductor John, who is a gem! He and the other volunteer staff were an added bonus!Audra S.
I’m a local from Summerlin and today was my first time at the Nevada Southern Railway and I loved it the train ride was a lot of fun I will definitely be returning!Jonathan T.
This little railway museum was an awesome place to visit with the family. It’s inexpensive and only a 30 min drive from the strip. The train ride was inexpensive and they have a really cool rail explorers attraction I definitely want to try.Zurama H.
Have enjoyed many trips on the train with my grandkids and family. They read Christmas stories at the holidays & have a train robbery. Fun filled time every time.Becky E.
Wonderful getaway for the family only 30 minutes from the downtown. Staff (Michelle, CJ) were so friendly and accommodating. Expect to spend about 90 minutes there. Bring refreshments and snacks after the peddle pusher and train back and don’t forget to ask for the locals deal! Even an Easter bunny for the little ones. Good times!Aubrey R.
This is a neat museum that shows a lot of southern Nevada’s history with trains! There are mail and rocket carrier trains and you can actually go on one of the working trains for a ride. It’s a lot of fun for a family day.Sierra M.
I brought my toddler here for a train ride on a Saturday morning. We did 10 am train ride. She had a blast. I would definitely recommend it…We saw a group of sheeps near the cliffs. We also got a chance to ride on the steamers.Marie B.
