Welcome to another Big Train Tour at the Colorado Railroad Museum! This month, we’ll be taking a look at the outdoor Garden Railroad located on the Museum grounds. Since its beginnings in the mid-1990s, this operating layout has grown to become one of the Museum’s most popular attractions. But when it was first being constructed, this was a pioneering project in the garden railway world—and the Colorado Railroad Museum was a much different place!

Join Colorado Railroad Museum Executive Director Paul Hammond as he explores the history behind the Museum’s unique railroad collection!
