It’s #TBT (Throwback Thursday)!

Today we have home movie footage from Museum volunteer George Lawrence. George, still an active volunteer, often filmed at the Museum in the mid-70s on a handheld 8mm camera. This week we join Colorado Railroad Museum founder Robert W. Richardson on a trip to ride the Durango & Silverton railroad!

Do you have any “home movies” that feature the Colorado Railroad Museum or Colorado Railroads and you’d like to share it? Contact the Museum’s Multimedia Coordinator Matthew Isaacks at

In 2021 the Museum is operating socially distanced train rides each Saturday! Follow us on Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.
