Boy Scouts from across the Las Vegas Valley made their way to the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Boulder City on Saturday as they learned the ins and the outs of the industry for their railroad merit badges.
“Railroading is becoming a dying art form, as it were, so it’s good to get the boys out here to see the importance of not only the history of railroading, but the safety aspects of it,” said Kelly Williams, assistant Scout master of Troop 700 of Las Vegas.
