Nevada Northern Railway Ely depot 674

Nevada Northern Railway Ely depot 674
One of the more interesting things about Ely is that they've put quite a bit of effort into maintaining the railroad that once was the lifeline of the surrounding mines (the Nevada Northern). And, they've kept the railroad in a way that is different from many other older railroads in the west -- they focus on keeping it running as it originally existed, rather than adding specially refurbished equipment designed to attract tourists. As the CEO of the railroad said, 'this was a working railroad with nothing fancy, and that is what it will remain.' More on the railroad is available from their website:

Since I enjoy older trains and have friends that enjoy them, here's lots of pictures. This is the 'East Ely' station, which is the museum and headquarters for the railroad.
