FORMER MAYOR, OSCAR GOODMAN, APPLAUDING THE LVRRS' EFFORTS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING....

Left: Bruno Platzer/ Co-Founder/ President, LVRRS
Right: Former Las Vegas Mayor, Oscar Goodman
Former Las Vegas Mayor and the entire LV City Council felt so strongly about the Las Vegas Railroad Society's tireless efforts to create a 'Railroad Heritage Park' for our local community, that it was unanimously decided to provide the necessary property for this very important community project.

Today's generation wants to know everything
about Las Vegas' live steam era!
And tomorrow's generations
need to know!

The LVRRS will demonstrate all of it, in more ways than one!

 

LOOKING AHEAD

'RAILROAD HERITAGE PARK' TO RE-ENACT LAS VEGAS' ENTIRE RAILROAD HISTORY....

Once open, the centrally-located 'Railroad Heritage Park' will bustle with all the authentic sights depicted within the Gilded-Progressive Age of Nevada's railroad and mining history. This era was selected as a tribute to industrial ingenuity, paired with the pioneer entrepreneurial spirit for which Nevadans are known. Beautiful old-world architecture will embrace park guests in the future Railroad Heritage Park.

The 15 acre Mining Town museum facilities inside our park's canyon will provide cool and educational indoor activities which everyone will seek out during hot summer months.

PROPERTY LOCATION: The future 'Railroad Heritage Park' will be one of Las Vegas' most unique one-of-a-kind cultural additions! Feel free to Contact Us for details.

==========

VISIONS & GOALS:

TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM / TRAINS WITH A PURPOSE:

Once open to the public, it would be difficult for our park visitors to see the railroad museum, mining museum facility, Victorian Botanical Garden, Railroad Heritage Park 'Arts District' and other educational facilities on foot.

Comfortable large scale steam powered public trains will haul park guests, school children, special needs children and senior groups to various in and outdoor program activities throughout the Railroad Heritage Park, reenacting steam powered train journeys of yesteryear, combined with fun and educational destinations.

A CLOSER LOOK - RAILROAD HERITAGE PARK EDUCATION:

A COMMUNITY PARK FOR ALL: The new 'Railroad Heritage Park' will also be the home of a huge N/W side art center, to be enjoyed by local artisans, families and the community.

MINING MUSEUM: Train excursions will include a very special train route to the west-side's 15 acre canyon to visit the LVRRS' 'Western Mining Town' to take advantage of a future Mining Museum tour; as also educational underground mining excursions; a mining library; video presentations; mining exhibits and hands-on learning for all..

SUMMER ACTIVITY: The mining town will also include a huge indoor HO train layout facility with detailed mining-theme scenery in miniature, plus so much more, all for the purpose of education. The entire 'Western Mining Town' will remind everyone, that there is a lot to be said about the 'Silver State' of Nevada.

EDUCATION - EDUCATION - EDUCATION: Las Vegas' Railroad Heritage Park will be known as utmost disciplined, safe and highly educational institution with youth-oriented in and outdoor educational program activities, designed, to keep Las Vegas' children interested, off the streets, and simply on the 'right track'.
