The perfect merger of small town charm and business-friendly community, the City of Elko is not only the number one “best small town in America,” according to Norman Crampton’s book, but also the service hub of the Northeastern Nevada region.

The Northeastern Nevada Regional Railport: just six miles outside Elko, the Northeastern Nevada Regional Railport and Industrial Park offers rail service through Union Pacific and BNSF.
