Loneliest Road in America: East Ely Depot Railroad Museum & The Nevada Northern Railway

Welcome back to another special edition of Exploring Our Backyard presented by Travel Nevada!

Our next location on our journey down the loneliest road in America takes us to a little town called Ely! In Ely, we stopped by the Depot Railroad Museum & The Nevada Northern Railway.

"The Nevada Northern Railway was built over a century ago to service what would become one of the largest copper mines in North America. Today, several of the original coal-fired standard-gauge steam locomotives that were ordered and delivered new to the railroad over 110 years ago are still in operation! The Nevada Northern Railway is the best-preserved example of a standard-gauge short-line left in North America."
