It’s #TBT at the Colorado Railroad Museum and for #throwbacktthursday we have some Link & Pin Action filmed by Museum Volunteer Martin Prater. Marty, who is the husband of the Museum’s long-serving Business Manager was often on-hand to film interesting & important Museum happenings in the early 2000s & 2010s (this video was captured during the Museum’s 50th Anniversary Celebration event in July, 2009)!

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!
