Welcome!  We look forward to having you join us for our Trains Magazine's 81 photo weekend hosted by the Nevada Northern Railway in Ely, Nevada.  

Locomotive 81 will be re-entering service after 69 years of inactivity.  Locomotive 81 will be the star as she debuts for photo run-bys, night photo session, and double-heading with Consolidation No. 93.  Many of the historic freight and passenger consists will be deployed as well for this special weekend.  

This three-day event will include a lunch Saturday, a Friday barbecue, a special Saturday night dinner, and evening speakers both nights. Proceeds will benefit the restoration of Nevada Northern Ten-Wheeler No. 40.  

Advanced reservations are necessary.  This event will sell out. Attendance is strictly limited to 60 to keep the photo lines manageable. Do not drive to Ely unless you have a confirmed reservation.

NOTE:  To get the most out of this experience participants must be in reasonably good health.  There will be walking, standing, and climbing in and out of vintage railway equipment during the course of the event.  We are just over a mile high in elevation so we suggest that you plan on arriving in Ely early to acclimate yourself to the altitude and layout.  Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately, including sturdy footwear.  Note that the photoshoot will operate regardless of the weather.
