Welcome to The State Railroad Museum & 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 constructed 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 7.5" gauge live steam model trains with rides.

Hope to see you soon!
