A buddy of mine, visiting railroad related places on the west Coast went and checked out the old SPNG which is in the Owens Valley. I guess that it's in the middle of nowhere but they have some of the old equipment on display.

Thanks for the info about Carson City.

When I took the kids last Spring Break we did pass Carson City and I was talking to the kids about the History

BUT

I didn't know about the TRain Museam. I will make the stop instead of hitting NAPA,the kids aren't too excited about wines yet!

Griffith Park didn't know about the train museam we went there and toured around the building checking out the "Tesla" machine I will make sure we get to the trains!!

Thanks!!

Since it's So cold here kids and I were talking about our Spring break plans.

Carson city is doable as we will spend the night in lake Tahoe area as Napa is off the list.         

we do pass through Sacramento so we can stop their too then its down the Pacific Coast to L.A. area

Thanks everyone for the ideas!!!!!!!!!!!

Fred-

The California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento is an outstanding attraction. The Nevada Northern Railroad is good, too. It's east of Reno quite a ways but you could plan to stop there on your way to or from Lake Tahoe.

Fred-

Quite a ways. The Nevada on-line state map shows 320 miles. But it would be worth the drive if it's just a detour on the way going or coming. If you fly into Reno and then must do a 600+ mile trip, well, only you can decide if that would be worth your while. Why not go to the Nevada Northern web site and see what they have there? You might even decide to take an operator class or "rent" and run a locomotive for a while!
