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 7½” gauge live steam model trains with rides.




The Nevada Southern Railway is a short drive from Las Vegas and great for when you get away from the major city, up and over the hill into Boulder City, Nevada.

The Railway isn’t huge, so even if the family are not train fans there is just enough to keep everyone happy and not enough to make people board!

We paid $75 for a family (2 Adults, 3 kids) to ride in the caboose – They had a cheaper option to ride in a regular car however the other loud kids made the small upgrade worth it!

We were all by ourselves in the brake car and the brake man gave us a great chat on what he does and the history of the railroad!

The train ride is around 30minutes plus, there is also that the railway is being extended soon once the new highway is in place!

Las Vegas Beyond Highly Recommends The Nevada Southern Railway for families!
