Nevada Northern Railway Membership

You become an important part of the history here

Fast Facts

WHO: The Nevada Northern Railway is a non-profit 501c3 historical foundation, made possible only with the support of members like you.

WHY: The railway simply would not exist without its loyal members. In addition, members are entitled to some great benefits.

WHEN: Join anytime during the year. Your membership is good for the next 12 months.

HOW: The easiest way to become a member, renew your membership, or give a gift membership is to use the on-line membership process. 

Start by selecting a level, to the left.

Our museum membership program was established to preserve the historical character of the Nevada Northern Railway facilities and railroad equipment. In January 1992, the Nevada Northern Railway Membership Fund was established to provide direct financial support from its members. The fund has been instrumental in the rehabilitation of the railroad complex by not only providing direct funding, but as the seed for match grants.

In September 2006, the Nevada Northern Railway complex at East Ely was designated a National Historic Landmark.  This was an earmark achievement for the museum.  With it comes an increased responsibility for stewardship of the property, but, unfortunately, no direct general funding from state or national resources.  It remains up to the members at all levels to sustain the Nevada Northern operations, now and into the future.

Your membership is vital to keep the museum in operation. Will you join the thousands of railfans and historians around the world in this cause? You can join or renew today by selecting a membership below. It only takes a few minutes.

Gift memberships are also available on-line.  Select the membership level below then click the GIFT checkbox on the first page. 

If you are unable to complete membership on-line, simply print out the form and mail a check.

Hello! Does the yearly membership work towards tickets for the Polar Express train ride in December? Also, if you're buying adult and children's tickets thru the membership, do you have to use the "free" tickets in the membership for children's tickets? Thank you in advance!
The ticket credits that come with membership are for the regular excursion trains.  You can use those credits to upgrade to any other experience you like by paying the difference in fare.   The membership credits can be use for either adult or children tickets.  You can use them on all adult tickets, if you like.  

We look forward to welcoming each members to Ely to participate in the train rides and excursions, but we also appreciate the vast majority of members, who are members just to show their support for the restoration and preservations efforts here.   Your support is most apprecaited.  

Either way, thanks for becoming a member!
