Welcome to another Big Train Tour at the Colorado Railroad Museum! Our subject this month is a wood-bodied, narrow gauge railroad boxcar. Like many rail vehicles and especially narrow gauge ones, the car served several owners and sported at least three different numbers during its service life. Colorado & Northwestern boxcar 1026 today serves as a connection to a small railroad that once headed west from Boulder and up into the Rockies and this region’s storied past here in the Centennial State.

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