Engine 39

Meet Engine 39.


Meet Engine 39! The newest member of the “Rail City” fleet.

Rides are always free, but donations are accepted and appreciated.


Engine 39 will be seen rolling all throughout Sparks during big and small special events. The train is approximately 35 feet long and can hold anywhere from 12-15 passengers.

The 39 North Downtown board members had to take out a loan to purchase the train in time for the December special events in downtown Sparks. The train cost $22,215. The goal is to pay off the loan by the end of 2017. If we raise enough money, we will also purchase a caboose that is wheel chair accessible. Please help us get fundraising started off on the right track (pun intended).

39 North Downtown is eager to pay off the loan on Engine 39. The group is seeking sponsorships and donations. For more information, please contact Angela Handler at (775) 690-2581 or angela@39NorthDowntown.com.

We are seeking donations to help pay for the train and the train maintenance. – See more at: https://givingtrail.org/campaigns/200078/engine-39-sparks-nv-little-engine-that-could#sthash.OLpXWAeZ.dpuf
