The collection contains office files, correspondence, reports, leases, various legal, governmental and financial document, the collection contains large and small format maps, architectural and engineering drawings, published technical reports, railroad operational manuals, bound legal briefs, ledgers, and payroll and receipt books. The collection also includes the personal files of Walter Bracken, the Union Pacific's special representative in Nevada and vice president of the Las Vegas Land and Water Company, and a paper index of the collection materials.
The Union Pacific Railroad Photographs depict the Union Pacific Railroad Company's tracks, depots, locomotives, and stations in Southern Nevada and Southern California from 1904 to 1973. The photographs primarily depict Union Pacific officials in Las Vegas, Nevada, construction of Boulder City, Nevada and the Hoover (Boulder) Dam, hotels and casinos in Las Vegas, and the aftermath of flooding in 1938 that damaged Union Pacific tracks.

The collection also includes one sheet from the Bullfrog Goldfield Railroad company, which used the track, yard, and facilities of the Las Vegas and Tonopah and Railroad company between Beatty and Goldfield, Nevada.
From the Nye County, Nevada Photograph Collection (PH-00221) -- Series VII. Other areas in Nye County -- Subseries VII.E. Hawkins Family (Duckwater, Nevada). An inscription on the back of this photo reads: "Survey camp taken in 1909" Tonopah Tidewater Railroad in Railroad Valley, Nye County. Grandfather Roberts with the hat in his hand on top of the pyramid was Grandma Roberts' husband. Grandma was an Irwin." Martha Roberts Hawkins indicates that this inscription is wrong, that The Tonopah Tidewater Railroad never came to Railroad Valley and the railroad's construction was completed prior to 1909. The man pictured on top waving a hat is Frank Roberts, born in 1886. Photo is believed to be a survey crew for the Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad.
