Museum Building Progress

The Moffat Road Railroad Museum is currently working on developing the official museum building by converting the historic Great Western Depot from Loveland. 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. Check back often, as we will be updating this page with building progress, including ground breaking information and other progress photos.

Interpretive Center Park
1923 Caboose interior to be restored by Moffat Road Railroad MuseumThe Moffat Road Railroad Museum has received three pieces of railroad equipment for the Railroad Interpretive Center Park next to the Kaibab ball fields in Granby.


The first piece of equipment is a 1923 all wood, red UP caboose. See our Caboose Project page for more details on the project, and photos.

The second piece of equipment for the Interpretive Park is a 1915 era railroad hand-cart shed from Hot Sulphur Springs. See our Railroad Hand-Cart Shed Project page for more details on the project, and photos.

The third piece of equipment for the Interpretive Park is a 1905 Passenger Car. See our Passenger Car Project page for more details on the project, and photos.

We are currently in the process of restoring this equipment. If you would like to help in any way, please contact Dave Naples at 970.887.9478 or email info@moffatroadrailroadmuseum.org.

Future Building Plans for the Museum
The museum was originally planned as a large building to accomodate a large scale model railroad display. As the focus has changed to incorporate the museum building into the restored historic Depot, we have archived the original plans like floor plans, 3D renderings, and model layout. Check out these future plans for the museum.
