Robert W. Richardson and Cornelius W. Hauck opened the Colorado Railroad Museum
in 1959. Then, and now, our mission is dedicated to preserving for future generations a tangible record of Colorado’s dynamic railroad era and particularly its pioneering, narrow gauge mountain railroads.
In 1964, the nonprofit Colorado Railroad Historical Foundation was formed to assume ownership and operation of the Museum.
The Museum has experienced many positive changes since 2000. Interpretive signs have been installed around the property, the downstairs of the Museum has been remodeled into a temporary exhibit venue, restoration efforts continue at a renewed pace and the Museum continues to add historic pieces to its collection.
If you love trains, Colorado Railroad Museum
is a must see should you find yourself in Colorado. 62 years old and I am still fascinated by trains. Guess I always will be. ~David
