I put together a video collection of the best clips from my visit to Ely, NV where I saw 4-6-0 #40 in action:

Thanks for the video, Nevada Northern is on my list to go in the next year or so. What time of year did you go? Is this an all day thing? I have been looking into their engineer school that is a week long.

I think you'll like it. I'm a big fan of the Nevada Northern. They have a lot of original equipment and a great facility plus friendly people and nice scenery. I'm usually there in the summer. This year I was there on July 30. On Saturdays they usually do three runs, which take about 90 minutes each. In the past they often did at least two of those runs using steam, but the lousy economy is really hitting the tourism biz and steam is expensive. They only ran the steam loco one time that day, and I didn't have time to stay in the area a second day.

Besides the engineer school, and the regular train rides, they have several other options. You can ride in the cab for about $95 if I remember correctly, or do the "rent a loco" deal where they show you how to run it and let you take it out and back, I think that's around $700 but I'm not sure.
