It’s #TBT and for Throwback Thursday this week we have some great photos of the Museum’s early years from Museum member and volunteer John W. Stephens.

John, a member of the Museum’s track gang, captured these images in 1966 when he was just 11 years old using his Brownie Starmite 2 camera (which had been dropped from a tree)!

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.
