Model Railroad Layout: Christmas Trains
Modeled in 1/48th O Scale
Currently featuring Colorado’s largest permanent Christmas train display, the 1,100 sq. ft. O scale model railroad layout includes 5 running trains at once, tunnels, water, bridges, auto roadway, and a huge ski mountain with 2 chairlifts on the O scale tracks. There are even interactive features for kids to get involved! Additionally we have one train that is G scale (or Garden scale) running around the perimeter of the room near the ceiling, appropriately named the Moffat Sky Rail.
The model railroad display is typically open in the summer starting Memorial Weekend through September and then again the day after Thanksgiving through the first week in January.
Outside our normal hours, we can open by appointment (24 hour notice please). Call Dave Naples at 970-281-9094 to schedule it.
Behind the Moffat Road Model Railroad
The Moffat Road Model Railroad was originally started in 2009 by the Grand County Model Railroad Club as a working display of the “Moffat Road” Railroad – the Denver & Northwestern Pacific R.R. from Denver, Colorado to Craig, Colorado circa: 1905 thru 1960’s. What once started as a holiday display at town hall has now expanded into a full-scale museum that will eventually be open year-round.
We are always looking for volunteers to help run the model railroad.
The museum is also looking for artifacts to display permanently or for a limited time exhibition.
For specific needs and to help, please contact Dave Naples at 970-509-9894 or email us and see how you can contribute to the project today.
