Used to be an agreement with the Park Service to use the facility as a tourist attraction (rides on the baby-gauge railroad) and overflow to Furnace Creek facilities until the late '50s. But it's been closed to the public since. The closest you can get is the locked gate up the road to Ryan a ways from the Greenwater Valley road. A few historical interest groups can and do get in periodically. One is in the works right now from the Nevada Short Lines e-group.
