While on US-50, the loniest road in america, we stopped at the star attraction (the remaining ones were really B or C), the Ely Nevada Northern Railway Museum. It is in no way one of the best train museums I've seen (especially after SCMAGLEV and Railway Park south of Nagoya, or the one in York), but it was still an enjoyable stop. Those trains used to go to a nearby copper mine, from steam to diesel-electric:

once a day during that time of the season, a train takes passengers to the mine
