In October 2021, Keith Thomsen and Ken Hojnacki took a trip west to attend the TRAINS Magazine 81 for 81 Photo Weekend at the Nevada Northern Railway in Ely, Nevada.  They presented the second half of their program at the
September 2022 meeting but due to computer issues, not all the videos were able to be shown.  Here are five videos of trains of the Nevada Northern Railway during that event.
