Colorado Railroad Museum Annual Auction
Every year in February, the Museum makes available items that represent duplicates already on display or materials that are not quite in the scope of our collection. The Auction is a fundraising activity and proceeds benefit the Colorado Railroad Museum and its mission.

You’ll find great memorabilia from our archives and unique items that will add to your own railroadiana collection, or that will help you start your own collection of railroad heritage. From books to historical timetables, to railroad crossing signs and lanterns, we offer items with wide appeal.

The best part is your participation allows the Museum to uphold our mission to preserve and interpret Colorado railroad history for generations to come.
