Trains & Rail Fair!
August 14, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
There’s more to Colorado’s rich railroad heritage than simply trains! Join the fun at our first-ever “Rail Fair,” as the Colorado Railroad Museum celebrates the role railroads have played in the agricultural, mining, and transportation history of our state.
Train Rides will be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. During those same hours (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.), a variety of special activities and demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the Museum’s extensive outdoor campus.
Representatives from the National Western Stock Show will be on hand to share Denver’s rich history as a regional livestock hub. The Forney Transportation Museum will display a wagon, showcasing the earliest means of transporting migrants westward to Colorado. Learn more about Colorado mining and the extensive railroad network that served the far-flung regions.
Also on hand this day will be the Museum’s official mascot, “Spike,” the railroad dog. Turntable demonstrations will be ongoing, allowing you to try your hand at pushing a full-sized railroad turntable by hand! Food and beverages will be available for purchase as well. Come join the fun!
Regular admission and train ride prices apply this day. Advance reservations are suggested as capacity is limited.
