Join Colorado Railroad Museum Curator of Education & Exhibits, Elizabeth Nosek, to explore “Small Wonders” from the Museum’s collection as part of the new “Still Working On The Railroad” initiative. Each segment will focus on different items from the Colorado Railroad Museum’s collection.

In this episode we explore the history of Railroads and the Buffalo thriough the 1887 correspondence between the office of Peter Robidoux of Benkleman, Nebraska, Dealer in General Merchandise, Stockmen’s and Ranchmen’s Supplies, and Thomas Miller, General Freight Agent of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad Company in Omaha, Nebraska. The two letters, archived in the Museum’s collection, center on the loss car of buffalo bones that went missing in September of 1886. After a wait of some seven months, the Robidoux brothers demand $66.78 in payment for their loss.
