Railroad museum expands hours
April 24, 2014
Beginning May 3, the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum in Nevada City will be open five days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday through Tuesday.
The railroad museum is dedicated to the preservation of local transportation history and artifacts from the narrow gauge railroad era. Staffed by members of the Nevada County Historical Society, visitors are offered a docent-led historical tour of the museum, rail yard and restoration shop.
The rail yard houses a collection of wooden rail cars — some restored and others awaiting their turn in the restoration shop. The shop is often a busy place with volunteers doing rolling stock maintenance and other restoration projects. The museum's gift shop offers visitors a choice of many railroad-related items.
If you have not visited the nonprofit museum in the past year, there are several new restoration projects going on.
The museum is located at 5 Kidder Court in Nevada City. For more information, call 530-470-0902.
