Attention Railroad Collectors!

The museum is very grateful for the all of the donations we receive. Many of these donations are books and items from railroad fans’ collections that are not given with the intention of being part of the museum’s permanent collection, but rather are given for the sole purpose of raising money for exhibits and programs.  After due process, we are able to offer these items for sale in the museum store.

New Book Arrival!

The Bonanza King
John Mackay and the Battle over the Greatest Riches in the American West
By Gregory Crouch
$30.00
The rags-to-riches American frontier tale of an Irish immigrant who outwits, outworks, and outmaneuvers thousands of rivals to take control of Nevada’s Comstock Lode—the rich body of gold and silver so immensely valuable that it changed the destiny of the United States.

“A monumentally researched biography of one of the 19th century’s wealthiest self-made Americans…Well-written and worthwhile…John Mackay spent a lifetime defying odds.”
The Wall Street Journal

“No one does a better job than Crouch when he explores the subject of mining, and no one does a better job than he when he describes the hardscrabble lives of miners.”
San Francisco Chronicle
