What A Difference A Gauge Makes: Narrow Vs. Standard – New Exhibit Closing
January 2, 2021
Just what is rail gauge and why is it important are two questions addressed by this small exhibit that explores how Narrow Gauge became such a part of the Colorado railroad story and Standard Gauge came into its own.
There's something amazing about trains. The familiar whistle has always promised adventure. The gentle rock of the rails has set the rhythm of our lives. Experience it again at the Colorado Railroad Museum with over 100 narrow and standard gauge steam and diesel locomotives, passenger cars, cabooses HO Model Railroad and G-scale garden railway on our 15-acre railyard.
