Comments/Directions:
Steam locomotives No. 618, a 1907 Baldwin 2-8-0 from the Union Pacific Railroad and No. 75, also a 1907 Baldwin 2-8-0 from the Great Western Railway of eastern Colorado, have been restored and now take passengers on a 32 mile, 3 and one-half hour round trip to Vivian Park and return. The former D&RGW line (constructed in 1899) passes through rolling farmlands, skirts the banks of a mountain lake, and traverses the Provo River deep in the Provo Canyon. Steam runs daily from late May through early September, then diesels run during the off season. On weekends during the winter, the steam locomotives are used to pull trips to Vivian Park and back. The enclosed coaches are warmed by pot belly stoves and a great deal of wildlife can be seen along the tracks. Specialty trains (usually on Friday and Saturday evenings) include Murder Mysteries, Sunset Dinner, Old West Casino, Haunted Canyon at Halloween, and Polar Express Christmas Trains. Thomas the Tank Engine will be visiting the Heber Valley Railroad again this year. See current brochure or website for current schedule.

The main attraction of the Tooele County Musuem is former Tooele Valley Railway 2-8-0 No. 11, built by Alco in 1910 and 2 wood Tooele Valley Railway cabooses, ex-BA&P TVR 03 and ex-D&RGW TVR 04. The steam locomotive is on display next to the original Tooele Valley Ry. Depot, now on the Register of Historic Places. The engine has been restored to its original appearance. The depot houses artifacts and displays from Tooeles heyday when the Tooele Valley Railroad served the smelter just east of town. Today the smelter and the railroad are both gone. In the small railyard visitors can view a snowplow, several freight and passenger cars, and railroad maintainance-of-way equipment.. A miniature live-steam railroad offers short rides around the museum grounds on Saturdays during the summer. Operating hours are from 1-4 PM on Saturdays from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
