Heritage Round Trip Diesel Train

Ride to Gold Hill in our beautifully restored outdoor cars. The 35 minute excursion has several open cars for cooler temperatures and seeing the sites. Dine and shop in Virginia City before or after your ride.

Ride into the past aboard Nevada‚Äôs scenic and historic Virginia & Truckee Railroad from Virginia City to Gold Hill and back. By far the most famous of all American short lines, the ornate V&T trains hosted U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries in their heyday. The V and T R.R., completed in 1869, also hauled millions of dollars in gold and silver ore from the mines of the Comstock. Today, the railroad operates 100-year-old steam engines and heritage diesel locomotives, departing from the original 1870 depot at 166 F Street. The conductor-narrated excursions roll by some of the most famous mines and ruins. You may even see wild horses run alongside the tracks.
