It’s #TBT and for Throwback Thursday this week we have some video footage from Museum volunteer Michael McBride.

Michael was on-hand July 11, 2015 to capture Denver & Rio Grande Western Steam Locomotive No. 346 on the Museum’s Turntable and for a water stop at No Agua! We close with a nice shot of D&RGW Diesel Engine No. 5771 on static display.

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.
