TELL YOUR FRIENDS YOU DROVE A TRAIN!

Bet they can’t say the same.

For only $250/hr you can experience running a diesel-electric locomotive along the historic tracks of the Boulder Branch Line, which were used during the construction of the Hoover Dam in the 1930s. You will be accompanied and instructed by one of our certified, FRA licensed, locomotive engineers. Email us at Khemingway@nevadaculture.org or call 702 486 5006 for your “Engineer for an Hour” experience and choose one of the following locomotives:

EMD GP-30 #844 (Crowd Favorite)

Locomotive EMC NW-2 #1000 (Old Reliable)

Fairbanks Morse #1855 (Unique Mechanics)

GE 80-Ton Diesel-Electric Loco #L-3 (Rare Choice)

We highly recommend making reservations at least two weeks in advance. Reservations are available Tuesday through Friday only. One guest is allowed to accompany you in the cab. The engineer for an hour and guest must be at least 18 years old. Requests to drive a specific locomotive will be accommodated when possible, although substitutions may be necessary. A certificate, suitable for framing, is awarded at the end of your session.
