It’s #TriviaTuesday with the Colorado Railroad Museum! Each week, as part of our “Still Working on the Railroad” initiative we ask a railroad themed trivia question. Participants are invited to submit their Trivia responses as a comment on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram or Twitter or via email to Winners are announced the following week at the end of the video!

This week we have a question from subscriber Chris Crowley: What is the highest elevation Train Trestle in Colorado?

We did not receive any correct responses to #TriviaTuesday last week: When did the Cripple Creek Express make its first run to Midland, CO?
Answer: Monday December 11, 1893 (as written in Colorado Rail Annual No. 34: Take The Pike’s Peak Route)!

Have a GREAT Trivia Question you’d like us to feature? Send an email to the Museum’s Multimedia Coordinator at!

In 2021 the Museum is operating socially distanced train rides each Saturday! Follow us on Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. No correct answers were received this week!
