Often called the "best preserved" shortline in North America, the Nevada
Northern was one of the last great mining railroads built in the early 20th
century, carrying millions of tons of copper ore from Ely mines.
After cessation of railroad operations in 1983, it was donated to the
non-profit White Pine Historical Railroad Foundation to operate as a
working railroad museum.
Two excursion routes are operated; each trip is about 1.5 hours. The
Keystone route travels around downtown Ely, then passes through tunnel No.
1; one of the few curved tunnels in the world and up scenic Robinson Canyon
towards the mines. Or enjoy the scenic "Hiline" route through the
Steptoe Valley and towards the former mill and smelter.
