2023 Dates TBA

Museum members, we are offering you something special on four different Sundays in 2022—exclusively! On these days a special, dedicated car is available just for YOU to ride on our trains, and exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Tours are available for you to enjoy, too! These tours provide a deeper look into selected subjects, and they are different each time!

For the May Member Appreciation Day, trains will be pulled by an authentic, coal-burning steam locomotive. Rio Grande Southern business car Rico (recently refurbished to represent its later appearance as business car No. B-21) will be available exclusively for members to ride aboard. This unique car dates from 1880!

Please, adults 18+ only will be allowed on this tour. All participants must be able to climb and descend stairs. Tour times are 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 1:30 p.m.
