Iconic Palace Station train, sign ‘chug’ to Neon home
All aboard! The Nevada Southern train has arrived at the Neon Museum but it won’t be leaving our “station.” The train theme had been displayed on the side of the Palace Station Hotel-Casino near Interstate-15 and West Sahara Avenue since 1983, but now has a permanent home at the Museum.
In addition to the train, owners Station Casinos also donated a Palace Station neon sign. The donations, which were celebrated with an unveiling June 22 at the Museum, are the result of major renovations begun in 2016 at Palace Station.
“We’re thrilled that now we have an important piece of Las Vegas history preserved here at the Museum,” said president and CEO Rob McCoy. “It adds to the story we have to tell about this remarkable global destination.”
