Welcome to the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum

Located in Nevada City, California, the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum is dedicated to the preservation of local transportation history and artifacts from the narrow gauge railroad era.  Visitors are offered a docent-led historical tour of the museum, rail yard, and restoration shop.


The Museum exhibits a collection of railroad and aviation artifacts, photographs, and documents for visitors and historians alike.  Exhibits include the NCNCRR Engine 5, rolling stock, an early steam automobile, and other examples of Nevada County’s transportation history. Our Gift Shop offers railroad-themed books, toys, gifts, clothing, and other collectibles. 

The Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum is excited to announce the opening of its narrow gauge railroad excursion.  We are launching the Railroad Turntable Project, a culmination of two years worth of work laying and repairing track from the Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum down to the Northern Queen Inn in Nevada City, California.  We need $9,500 to complete the project.  Watch the video and we hope you will join us to complete this dream.
