    Me too. I enjoyed seeing them there.

    Funny that when the Stevens brothers bought the land, they didn't realize they also bought the train cars. From the article:

    Victor says the company was initially surprised to learn the trains had been included in
    the land sale. The Stevens brothers asked Boyd (owners of the Main Street Station casino)
    when the trains would be moved, and only then were they informed the trains were part of
    what they’d acquired.

    I'll miss the cars, but that is so funny. How many attorneys were involved in that sale and it never came up??

    I loved those train cars. Now I'll have to stop in Ely to see them on my way to Vegas.

    I will miss them too.
    I predict there will be a parking garage built there for the new Steven's property.
