It’s #TBT and for ThrowbackThursday this week we have a Railfan treat! 4K “behind-the-scenes” footage from the Colorado Railroad Productions YouTube team! The footage features our staff & volunteer crew preparing all three of the Museum’s steam locomotives for operation during the “Tripple Steam-Up Weekend” in May 2021!

Check out Colorado Railroad Production’s YouTube for more footage by clicking here!

Do you have any home movies or photographs that feature the Colorado Railroad Museum, The Museum’s equipment or Colorado Railroads in general? We’d love to share them! Contact the Colorado Railroad Museum’s Multimedia Coordinator Matthew Isaacks at or call 720-274-5141!

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