Join the Museum

The museum has a great opportunity to save the historic Great Western Depot from Loveland, built in 1901. With the help of many great volunteers and local businesses, this building will be carefully taken apart, transported to Granby, and rebuilt as the official Moffat Road Railroad Museum. The Depot will feature a visitor center, gift shop, and small display area. With this new focus, the museum can continue to enhance the Interpretive Center with new and existing projects. The building will be situated in the Railroad Interpretive Center, complete with outdoor life size displays of steam engine, caboose, railroad artifacts, etc., along with pathways, lights, and benches. The museum will provide students, residents, and visitors the opportunity to learn about the history of railroading and its effects on the economy and growth of Grand County.

The "Moffat Road" Model Railroad
The museum will house the Grand County Model Railroad Club’s working display of the "Moffat Road" Railroad - the Denver & Northwestern Pacific R.R. from Denver, Colorado to Craig, Colorado circa: 1905 thru 1960’s.
