It’s #triviatuesday at the Colorado Railroad Museum! This video, our question is: In what year did railways start using the Telegraph for communication?

Don’t know the answer? Watch our Small Wonders video on The Museum Telegraph Office to find out (Click Here to go to the right spot in the video to learn the correct response)!

Participants are invited to submit their responses as a comment or message! Each week we will select a winner from the correct responses to receive free Museum admission!

Last Question: Why does the Museum’s turntable have four rails? Answer: The Museum Turntable features four rails so it can serve dual gauge track while maintaining a centered-balance point.

Last time we received six correct responses! Our winner (randomly selected from those who sent in a correct response) is Tina Sanchez, who responded on Facebook! We also received correct responses from SodaPops12, Piedmont75, a.lil.bit.looney, Ken Light & Rick in AZ!

Have a GREAT Trivia Question you’d like us to feature? Send it in to the Museum at for consideration! Follow us on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram #crrm #trains #triviatuesday #musicbyhyce
