Have you ever walked in front of the Interpretive Center and looked down at the brick walkway? If you have, you've seen a tribute to those who supported this museum or just loved trains. What better way to honor those who played a role in railroad history or are just caught up by the romance of the rails?
When you buy a brick for the walkway, you enable the Museum to pass the story of Nevada railroading history on to future generations. Your purchase allows the Friends to support the Museum by providing funds for additional objects and projects that the State budget will not cover.
Just what do the Friends do? Just about everything from being the steam train crew to giving tours, from selling tickets to working at the Museum store. See more photos of the Friends atthe volunteers at work page.
