Annual Auction

We are excited to bring you the Colorado Railroad Museum Annual Auction.

You’ll find a wide range of items this year that represent surplus, out of scope, or duplicate materials. I know you will enjoy perusing the selections because there is something for every interest and we believe we’ve included some very unique collectibles you will find irresistible.

For the first time ever our auction will be hosted entirely online. This will give the participants access to new bidding tools, allow staff to invoice the winners as soon as the auction closes and provide access to more competitors than ever before!

Remember, all proceeds from this auction directly support the Museum’s Collections programs! It’s a win-win for you and the Colorado Railroad Museum!

Thank you for your supporting the Colorado Railroad Museum and good luck!
