One of the most exciting things on our new 2018 schedule is the Still Photography Workshop.  Our photography workshop is an intensive three and a half day experience. You will be able to hone your photography skills under the tutelage of two of the best-known rail photographers in the western United States, Steve Crise and Mike Massee.

This workshop offers an in-depth, hands-on photographic instruction in the time capsule here that is essentially unchanged since it was built a century ago.  There will be presentations, discussions, edit-and-critique sessions, and photo assignments in each day's schedule.  All levels of photographic expertise are welcome.

You are just in time to view some winter weather.  Occasionally we are asked if it ever snows in Ely.  At over a mile high in elevation, yes, it snows in the winter and usually rains a few times each week in the Summer. 

Until you have the chance to come up and visit us again, bookmark the real-time webcam every so often just to keep in touch.  Also, follow us on Facebook for all of the latest news on what's taking place and what's happening in the shop.
