Train Rides

The Colorado Railroad Museum is located at a point where Clear Creek flows between North and South Table Mountains. All of our train rides are highlighted by historic Table Mountain in the background . . . a popular site for railway photographers.

Train rides also allow for a unique view of the Museum’s Roundhouse and Turntable, display tracks complete with a rare three-way stub switch, dual gauge track and switches and century-old switch stands. Plus you’ll have a full panoramic perspective from the rails of all our historic narrow and standard-gauge locomotives and rail cars.

Nearly every Saturday you’ll find a unique Colorado rail experience as a passenger on our 1/3-mile oval of three-foot, narrow gauge track. You’ll lose track of time in a vintage passenger car pulled behind one of our steam locomotives, Galloping Goose No. 7, or our center cab diesel Locomotive No. 4.

Galloping Goose Rides, Ride the Rails Saturdays and Special Events all offer distinct equipment, passenger cars and activities. So check our calendar and the details for each exciting excursion to plan your next weekend visit.

On operating Saturdays and Special Event weekends, trains depart at the top of the hour or every 30 minutes between 10:00am to 4:00pm. Special admission pricing may apply.
