The Nevada State Railroad Museum, Boulder City preserves the heritage of the historic Boulder Branch Line, commissioned by the Union Pacific Railroad in 1931 to haul equipment and material needed to construct the Hoover Dam.

In addition to static displays of restored railroad equipment that once operated on Nevada’s railroads, the museum currently operates weekend heritage excursion trains on the original railroad line laid down by the Union Pacific. This unique Las Vegas area attraction takes visitors on a trip along the tracks of southern Nevada’s colorful past aboard refurbished and air-conditioned Pullman Coaches dating back to 1911.

The scenic seven-mile round trip travels along the eastern end of the Boulder Branch Line and lasts approximately 45 minutes. Passengers can take in gorgeous views of the sprawling El Dorado Valley, McCullough and River mountain ranges and Mojave Desert plant life and cacti along the route.
