It’s #TBT and for #ThrowbackThursday this week we’re taking a look at historic Golden, CO through the photography collection of author and historian Dan Abbott!

Dan’s latest book, Rails Around The Table Mountains: The Railroads of Golden, Colorado is now available for pre-order (click here) and includes hundreds of historic images, some colorized for the first time!

Pre-order your copy of Colorado Rail Annual No. 35 from the official Museum web site before January 31, 2024 to receive FREE continental shipping and a special edition signed and numbered by the author!

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!
