The Colorado Railroad Museum, Golden, CO
The Colorado Railroad Museum is recognized as one of the best privately supported rail museums in the United States. This "can't miss" site for railfans features over 70 historic narrow and standard gauge locomotives and cars exhibited on 15 acres at the foot of North Table Mountain, near Golden, Colorado.
The museum was established in 1959 to preserve for future generations a tangible record of Colorado's flamboyant railroad era, particularly the state's pioneering narrow gauge mountain railroads. The mission of the Colorado Museum is: "...to acquire, preserve and exhibit to the general public, railroad equipment, artifacts, paper records, books, artwork, and photographs emphasizing Rocky Mountain area railroads, to explain and interpret the role of railroads in the history of this region from the 1860s to the present by means of exhibits, a reference library, educational programs, publications, and information sharing with other historical groups."
