It’s #TBT and for #ThrowbackThursday this week we have some fun photos of Museum crew members operating Denver & Rio Grande Western No. 346 in the snow on March 6, 2007, captured by long-time volunteer George Lawrence! The engine was still warm from a ceremony the day before to honor historian Richard Kindig during his last visit to the Museum in Golden, Colorado and was using Locomotive No. 318’s tender!

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 us at!
