Special Events

Steam Up Events

Holiday and seasonal trains along with special rail-related events, highlight the Museum’s annual Timetable and include a ride behind one of the Museum’s steam or diesel locomotives in passenger cars from different eras in Colorado railroad history.

Open Car Saturdays allow you to climb aboard several restricted pieces of rail equipment for a firsthand tour and catch a ride behind the uniquely Colorado Galloping Goose. Rides and tours operate 10:00AM to 4:00PM.
