The V&T Railway Commission will host train rides over Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday and Sunday, May 11-12.

Guests will rediscover Nevada’s rich history in mining and mills on the V&T Carson City-Virginia City route meandering through tunnels, canyons and mining towns aboard a restored 1914 Pullman coach led by a 1916 Baldwin 2-8-0 steam locomotive.

The all-day train excursion is narrated with historical facts and anecdotes. Departing from Carson City’s Eastgate Depot, the 24-mile round trip tour includes a 3.5-hour stopover in Virginia City, where guests can stroll the boardwalks and explore restaurants, shops, saloons, museums, mines and more.

Complimentary coffee, mimosas and pastries will be served. Additionally, each mom will receive a gift. Cost for adults (ages 16 and up) is $65, and children (ages 2-15) $45. Infants 24 months and under ride free when sitting on a parent's lap.
