It’s #TBT and for ThrowbackThursday this week we are sharing some footage of Denver & Rio Grande Western Steam Locomotive No. 491 captured by Museum volunteer Michael McBride at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, CO on August 30, 2014.

Guests can ride behind the locomotive this Saturday, February 19, 2022 – get your ticket online 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 2022, the Museum is offering Train Rides every Saturday mid-January through Labor Day, and also during the month of October. Follow us on Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.
