The Moffat Road Railroad Museum is as much fun as it is educational for the whole family! Currently featuring Colorado’s largest permanent Christmas train display, the 1,100 sq. ft. O scale model railroad layout includes 6 running trains at once, tunnels, water, bridges, auto roadway, and a huge ski mountain with 2 chairlifts. The Interpretive Center includes 8 different pieces of railroad equipment in various stages of restoration. The Visitor Center has artifacts to take you back to the old Moffat Road railroad times, plus the gift shop has handcrafted local artisan items and kids’ toys available.

News & Events
Volunteers are needed to work on the new Moffat Railroad layout! Interested in working on this exciting project?
Our new addition has been completed, including the exterior’s Western town facade. We are now starting to build the HO scale Moffat railroad model train layout, which will be a replica starting from the east portal of the Moffat Tunnel all the way to Craig. We are looking for some volunteers to help us out. There are multiple skill sets needed – electrician, carpenters, artists, model builders, etc. Whether you have any specific skills or not, we’d welcome anyone who would like to join us.
We will have regularly scheduled Volunteer Days throughout the spring and summer:
Just show up any day that you can help!
Thanks to all who joined us for the first-ever Grand Eggstravaganza
On Saturday, April 16 we had an eggstraordinary community event!
Voted Best of Grand
A BIG THANKS… to all who voted for us for the Sky-Hi News’ 2021 Best of Grand in the “Best Museum” category!
Technically we came in 2nd place, as the Troublesome Stories: Art and Artifacts from the East Troublesome Wildfire temporary display in Grand Lake was awarded first. We are excited (and proud!) of all we’ve accomplished, particularly in the past year and a half, with our fun community events and the progress on our Master Plan.
1922 Steam Locomotive Has Arrived!
On Friday, October 8th, 2021, the 1922 WestSide Lumber #8 3-truck Shay was loaded up in Canon City, CO and transported to the Moffat Road Railroad Museum where it was rolled from the truck onto our museum’s tracks. This beautiful, restored piece of railroad history is quite impressive to see!
Plan Your Visit
Visitor Center & Gift Shop
There are countless artifacts from the railroad days on display, an interactive locomotive so that you and your kids can see how the train runs, and a delightful gift shop with BRIO & Lionel train sets too.
Model Railroad Display
Experience the magic of Christmas and model trains! Our snow-covered Christmas model railroad layout is on display and you can explore countless fun features. It’s over 1,100 square feet!
We wouldn’t be an official museum without these amazing railroad exhibits that are at various stages of restoration! Tour our fully-renovated 1923 UP Caboose completed this spring, plus more.
Family Train Ride
Coming Soon! Our train, that can accommodate both children and adults, is currently being custom built. We hope to have it up and running this year! Tickets will be available for purchase inside the Visitor Center for $4 per person.
Stay tuned for more info about the new family train ride!
