The Nevada State Railroad Museum, located in Carson City, Nevada, preserves the railroad heritage of Nevada, including locomotives and cars of the famous Virginia & Truckee Railroad. Much of the museum equipment was obtained from Hollywood studios, where they were often featured in movies and television. In addition, the museum features one of the largest collections of 19th Century railroad equipment in the United States, as well as the only fully-restored and operable McKeen Motor Car in the world.  The museum is operated by the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs.
