It’s #TBT and for Throwback Thursday this week we have some behind-the-scenes images of Rio Grande Southern Steam Locomotive No. 20 as the engine was in Strasburg, PA undergoing restoration. Friend of the Museum, James Kottkamp was in the area in March 2017 and offered to take these pictures during his visit so Museum staff and volunteers could see the progress being made.

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.
