Located not far from Las Vegas, there’s trains on display that are free to see, very interesting carriages. Also a rideable journey starting at only $10, with options to ride up front in the engine. Really nice staff 5*

Near Hoover Dam this impressive railroad museum has different kinds of railroad rolling stock. There are engines, as well as freight and passenger cars. It is fascinating and fun to see the exhibits here, and it is well worth a stop.

We are lucky enough to live in Boulder City, so we get to see the train in action all the time which our two boys just love. Riding it is even better! The staff is wonderful and they create such a fun atmosphere. They have...More
