It’s #TriviaTuesday at the Colorado Railroad Museum! This week our question is: In 1978 the Denver & Rio Grande Western celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the opening of which Colorado railroad icon?

Participants are invited to submit their responses as a comment on our Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, web site or by email at

Last Question: What Colorado railroad operated the “Gulf Coast Special?” Answer: The Colorado & Southern (subsidiary of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy and the parent company of the Fort Worth & Denver) operated the Gulf Coast Special from Denver to Dallas in 1940-48!

Last video we received 7 correct responses! Our winner, selected by random drawing is Ryan’s Colorado Rail Productions who responded on YouTube! Correct (or close-enough) responses were also received from: Jarrett E. Carlson, James May, HillSideWestern12, My Toy Trains, John Rhodes & Adam Shaw!
