Fodor's Review

During the mining boom the Nevada Northern Railroad connected East Ely, Ruth, and McGill to the transcontinental rail line in the northeast corner of Nevada. The whole operation is now a museum. You can tour the depot, offices, warehouses, yard, roundhouses, and repair shops, and catch a ride on one of the trains daily in summer. You can even stay overnight in a caboose or bunkhouse.
