9th Annual Nevada Northern Railway Photo Shoot—The 2008 Winter Steam Spectacular.

Feb. 1-3
Feb. 8-10
Feb. 15-17
Nevada Northern Railway Museum
Ely Nevada

According to William L. Withuhn, Curator, History of Technology & Transportation at the Smithsonian Institution:

"Among all railroad historic sites anywhere in North America, the Nevada Northern Railway complex at East Ely is—no question in my view—the most complete, most authentic, and best cared-for, bar none. It's a living American treasure and a standout one. Historic tracks, original depot and office building, enginehouse, freight shed, three original steam locomotives, five historic and rare wooden passenger cars, Kennecott diesel engines, 60 early freight cars, working machine shop, foundry—even the coaling tower and water tower that are icons of the site—everything is still there."
