Imagine a time, about a hundred years ago, when the citizens of Nevada used the railroad to get around. Ely was the home of the Nevada Northern Railway, and now houses a museum dedicated to the railway.

The 'Nevada Northern' is celebrating its centenial anniversary. News 88.9's Rick Andrews went on a tour of the museum with executive director Mark Bassett.
