Primm Monorail Crossing
Posted March 30, 2016, by Brandon (haiderodes [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Actually, this narrow gauge railroad bridge was built after the one further south (between Primm Valley Resort and Whiskey Pete's).

After a few years of operation the railroad was replaced by monorail track and eventually abandoned in the early 2000's due to low ridership between Buffalo Bill's and Whiskey Pete's.
