On several special occasions during the year, V & T Locomotive No. 25 brings steam to life and pulls excursion trains around the route at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City. Some of these special times are Memorial Day Weekend, Independence Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Labor Day, and Nevada Day. V & T Locomotive No. 25 also steams up in December for a series of Santa Train Runs. At other times, the same route is also run with diesel - electric engines.
