It’s #TBT and for Throwback Thursday this week we have more of Museum volunteer George Lawrence’s slides captured in the late-1970s at the Colorado Railroad Museum! In addition to images of Denver & Rio Grande Western Locomotive No. 318 in operation, George also caught the crew showing off by cooking egg sandwiches in the locomotive firebox when a local 9 News reporter visited the Museum!

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!

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.
