“While our train is air-conditioned, the locomotives are not,” said Museum Director Randall Hees. “In the interest of crew and public safety we are suspending our 2:30 pm train from mid-June through August. We may suspend train operations completely if the temperature exceeds 115 degrees.

Unless otherwise noticed, train rides will continue to be offered at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The museum’s train ride is a scenic 45-minute round trip of 7 miles, which follows a portion of the old Boulder Branch Line, built in 1931 during the construction of Hoover Dam.

The museum is located at 600 Yucca St., in Boulder City.
