The Moffat Road Railroad Museum is working on several railroad equipment restoration projects that make up the Interpretive Center, as well as fully-restored projects including the Visitor Center. The museum currently has five pieces of railroad equipment located at the Railroad Interpretive Park that are in various stages of restoration.
The Moffat Road Railroad Museum Interpretive Center includes a 1905 Passenger Car, which was transported from Rhode Island. The 1915 era railroad hand-cart shed from Hot Sulphur Springs was saved from demolition to become part of the Interpretive Center. There is also a 1923 all wood, red UP caboose from Nebraska, which was the first piece of railroad equipment for the museum. The 1913 Denver & Salt Lake steam crane, which was used in the early 1900’s to handle train wrecks in Grand County, will be restored it to the original D&SL Railway #10300 appearance. The newest addition is the 1906 Caboose, a rare, wooden caboose that came to the Museum in January of 2021.
Restoration projects are underway, so if anyone is interested in helping with any of the projects, they should contact Dave Naples at 970-509-9894. We need all the help we can get!!
