For only $250 you can experience running a diesel-electric locomotive along the historic tracks of the Boulder Branch Line, which were used during the construction of the Hoover Dam in the 1930s.  You will be accompanied and instructed by one of our certified locomotive engineers.  Call us for your “Engineer for an Hour” experience and choose one of the following locomotives:

  • GE 80-Ton Diesel-Electric Locomotive #L-3 
  • Locomotive EMC NW-2 #1000
  • Fairbanks Morse #1855  
  • EMD GP-30 #844

We highly recommend making reservations at least two weeks in advance.  Reservations are available Tuesday through Friday only.  One guest is allowed to accompany you in the cab.  The engineer for an hour and guest must be at least 18 years old.  Requests to drive a specific locomotive will be accommodated when possible, although substitutions may be necessary.  A certificate, suitable for framing, is awarded at the end of your session.

Please call 702-486-5006 or 702-486-5952 for your reservation.  Click here for an Engineer-for-an-Hour flyer.
