It’s #TriviaTuesday at the Colorado Railroad Museum! This week, in anticipation of the release of our latest Colorado Rail Annual: Rails Around The Table Mountains, our question is, in what year was the first Funicular Railway opened for operation in Golden, Colorado?

Participants are invited to submit their responses as a comment or message! Last Question: Can you name one of the railroads that operated in Golden, Colorado? Answer: Correct answers included: The Colorado Central and the Colorado & Southern!
