The Nevada Northern Railway was built in 1905-1906 to support the booming copper producers in White Pine County, Nevada and extended northward 140 miles to connect with Southern Pacific's mainline at Cobre. Due to declining ore reserves and low copper prices, the Kennecott Copper Corporation transferred ownership of the railroad's running stock, depot, yard and shop facilities in East Ely to the non-profit White Pine Historical Railroad Foundation in 1986. The organization now operates the National Historic Landmark's shops complex and depot museum as the Nevada Northern Railway museum, including passenger excursion train service using period equipment pulled by historic steam and diesel locomotives.
