What happened to the Train at the Tropicana?

Laughlin, Nevada

RR Crossing Sign by the Tropicana in Laughlin - 2012

Over the past year we have had several people ask us about the train at the Tropicana in Laughlin, Nevada.

We learned that in the spring of 2012 had been donated to the Las Vegas Railroad Society (Pictures).

Perhaps in the near future visitors will be able to see or ride the old Ramada/Tropicana Express Train once again thanks to the donation of the Tropicana and the efforts of the Las Vegas Railroad Society.
