June 24 – July 26, 2021 The next morning, we arose early, packed up and drove over to the Nevada Northern Railway Museum situated at the East Ely Yards.  They were designated a National Historic Landmark District in 2006 and the site was cited as one of the best-preserved early 20th-century railroad yards in the […]

Hot Springs 2021, Part Five
