It’s #TBT at the Colorado Railroad Museum and for Throwback Thursday this week we have some great photos of Denver & Rio Grande Western Steam Locomotive No. 315 captured by longtime Museum volunteer George Lawrence! No. 315 was on display in Durango during the 26th Narrow Gauge Convention in August 2006 and would return to operation under steam during Railfest in 2007!

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 at!
