Nevada Northern Railway Excursion Train this Fall150 years ago the Gold Spike was driven to commemorate the binding of the continent together.  Come and celebrate!  Need some ideas?


Plan a week-long road trip around the Golden Spike Territory.  We put together a complete itinerary, including driving on a portion of the original transcontinental roadbed.

You can ride the Copper Spike Limited or one of the other excursion trains up Robinson Canyon toward the old Ruth Mining District and actually see the original copper spike.

The Nevada Northern Railway is famous for real railroad experience - Hands On History experiences, such as running the steam locomotive out on the mainline, or being part of Railroad Reality Week, or even sleeping overnight in the center of the yard.
