The Colorado Railroad Museum was founded in 1959 by Colorado Railroad historian and photographer Bob Richardson to preserve the history of Colorado railroading. The museum was moved from the Narrow Gauge Motel that was located in Alamosa Colorado to its present location which is now the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden. The museum has several static displays of narrow gauge equipment and a indoor museum about the history of Colorado railroading along with a huge model railroad layout down stairs. Steam operates throughout the year with DRGW 346, Drgw 491 and RGS 20 along with several operating RGS galloping gooses. The museum is also a very popular place for children during several holidays throughout the year. This is a must see for railroad buffs of all ages.
