Pony Express Limited

August 7, 2021 @ 4:30 pm

Join us for a commemoration of the famous Pony Express route that traversed Nevada, linking the country together in 1860.  At 4:30 sharp, a train pulled by one of our steam locomotives will pull out of Ely, heading up the hill toward the old Ruth Mining District.  Once we arrive at the Keystone area we will stop so you can witness a Pony Express hand-off staged by Ely’s own Ghost Riders.  This local volunteer group is responsible for the Pony Express reenactment as it crosses White Pine County each year.  Back in Ely, you will be able to spend some time with the Ghost Riders and talk to them about the historic Pony Express and their participation in the nationwide Pony Express re-enactment
