HOP THE TRAIN ON EASTER WEEKEND

Ely, Nevada—Whether Ely’s Easter Sunday will bring snow or sunshine remains to be seen.  One thing is for sure, though:  train passengers on the Nevada Northern Railway will be as snug as an Easter Bunny this coming weekend.

Sat., Apr. 23 at 1 p.m. will feature a steam locomotive train, taking the Keystone Route towards Ruth, and passing through two tunnels along the way.  Guests on the train and throughout town will hear that iconic steam whistle blow.

The Nevada Northern Railway Museum will feature two trains on Easter Sunday.  The first train, Sun., Apr. 24 at 9:30 a.m. will also be a steam locomotive train, taking the Keystone Route.  The second train on Easter Sunday, Apr. 24 at 1 p.m. will be a diesel locomotive train and head toward McGill.

Tickets for the train are $24 for adults ages 13+, $15 for children ages 4-12 and under 4 are always free.  All White Pine and Eureka residents receive a discount of $5 per ticket.  Caboose rides are available for a $10 per ticket surcharge.  For a real treat and $95 per person, up to two people can ride in the cab with the Engineer.  Seating is extremely limited on this last option, so reservations are highly encouraged.

For more information and tickets, please call toll-free at (866) 407-8326, locally at (775) 289-2085 or visit the website at www.nnry.com.  The Nevada Northern Railway Museum can also be found on Facebook and live action videos can be found at www.youtube.com/nnry1.  Patronage of the Nevada Northern Railway Museum helps support and preserve this important piece of history and culture
