This week for #ThrowbackThursday we’re celebrating Colorado Railroad Heritage Week, marking the anniversary of a monumental moment in history – the arrival of the first train in Denver! :station::sunrise_over_mountains:

On June 24, 1870, the Iron Horse made its grand entrance, transforming Denver from a remote frontier town into a bustling gateway to the West. The whistle of that first locomotive heralded a new era of growth, opportunity, and connection for Colorado and beyond.

Join us as we honor the legacy of the railroads that shaped our great state and remember the pioneering spirit that drove those iron tracks across the Rockies. :steam_locomotive::heart: #ColoradoRailroadHeritageWeek #DenverHistory #RailroadLegacy
