Ely, NV - Nevada Northern Railway Museum - Trials, tragedies, and tenacious efforts undertaken by staff and volunteers to restore Nevada Northern 4-6-0 No. 40 to place it back into service. In 2001, it looked like 40 might be sidelined for good. The Federal Railroad Administration issued new boiler rules and 40 was relegated to the engine house gathering dust. No one should undertake the rebuilding of a steam locomotive lightly. In February 2005, locomotive 40's whistle resonates across the Great Basin, repeating an audible announcement that dates to 1910—the Queen is again under steam!
