July 30, 2005
Colorado Railroad Museum The Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden! :)
This is a really great place to take your kids (especially if they love trains) or for railroad enthusiasts and Colorado history buffs. My parents and I enjoyed our visit for sure.

Denver & Rio Grande Railroad
Look at this big hunk of a train! That is all steel ... kind of like the way cars were made in the old days. (e.g. 1964 Cadillac)

This train is the Denver & Rio Grande Western Gauge Locomotive. See the bottom right photo to see just how large the metal area is for feeding it coal. Wow!

Caboose Many different historic old trains in there including this caboose.

Another really old-looking railcar!

Here are all of my Denver area pages:

  • Botanic Gardens, Butterfly Pavilion
  • Casa Bonita Restaurant, Late Night Walk
  • Colorado Rockies Game
  • Colorado Railroad Museum My parents and I took the tour train ride, and the engineer stated that this black "191" train was built in the 1860's. Pretty interesting!

    Lastly, they have an old Midland Railroad train car!

    This is the same train that would travel up Ute Pass from Colorado Springs! Check out my recent hike of the actual old Colorado Midland Railroad bed between Manitou Springs and Cascade. Inside the train, note the attractive interior. The dark red chairs are currently being restored to its original quality. Also, note the black and white photo. The train traveled to Eleven Mile Canyon with another spur heading to Cripple Creek. The train was known to stop in Green Mountain Falls for guests to pick wildflowers.
