Haunted Train for Halloween
We had a blast-and-a-half spooking kids of all ages. We were surprised how many young ones got on board the train, and we quickly figured out how to downplay the scariness level when needed.

1922 Steam Locomotive Arrived October 8th!
The 1922 WestSide Lumber #8 3-truck Shay was relocated from the Royal Gorge Route Railroad in Canon City, CO to the museum’s Interpretive Center! It was transported by truck to Granby and then a crane service assisted with positioning the locomotive onto the display track.
September 4th Crawfish Boil
Thanks to those who joined us for our Louisiana-style Crawfish Boil on Saturday, September 4th, 2021. We hope everyone enjoyed the food, activities and music!
We couldn’t have done it without the hard work and hustle of our staff, board and friends! We are very grateful to them and would like to thank everyone who helped.
We hope to see everyone again this holiday season with your visiting family
