The Nevada State Railroad Museum in Boulder City does host some narrow gauge tracks with occasional operations on those tracks. The museum also has standard gauge tracks with more frequent operations.

The Nevada Division of Museums and History is working on a $40 million plan to turn the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Boulder City into a tourism attraction that could lessen the sting of the Interstate 11 bypass around the city set to open next year.

Boulder City officials say they expect a 40 percent decline in visitation once the bypass opens.

Peter Barton, administrator of the division, told the Nevada Commission on Tourism on Monday that he will go to the Nevada Legislature in 2019 for seed money to expand the museum that draws about 40,000 people a year. However, the museum will get an added boost thanks to a new railroad bridge that will carry tracks over I-11 and link Boulder City with Henderson.

Note that "40 percent decline in visitation" is in reference to the downtown city itself, not the museum visitation. The goal is that increased draw of the expanded museum will help offset the the tendency of the new I-11 freeway bypass around Boulder City to lessen tourist spending within the city.
