Volunteer Days

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 summer:

Wednesdays 4-6:30 pm & Fridays 10 am-4 pm

Just show up any day that you can help!

 

2021 Best of Grand

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!

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!

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.
