Hotel is on convention shuttle route.
There are two options to sleep overnight in the historic main East Ely yard of the Nevada Northern Railway the caboose or the bunkhouse. Both locations make great headquarters to witness all of the action in the yard. For example, if you return from a locomotive rental or one of our evening trains you will be dropped off just steps from your accommodations.
Evenings up here are usually cool and clear. At night, the rail yard becomes eerily quiet. Soon all you hear is the hooting of the owl that lives in the coaling tower. As you climb into your bed you can imagine what it was like during the heyday of the railroad.
The next morning don't be surprised to be awakened to the sounds of steam locomotives getting ready for the day. It only takes a minute or two to walk down to the engine house to take a look at what is going on. You're welcome to watch as the crew gets the locomotives ready for the day.
