City of Boulder residents, the last FREE day at the Colorado Railroad Museum is for you this Friday, August 16th!
The museum is located at 17155 West 44th Ave. in Golden, CO, and the free train day runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A free train ride is provided, weather permitting.
In 2012, extensive restoration efforts were completed on the city's historic engine and rail cars, which include locomotive #30, Rio Grande Southern caboose #04990 and Denver and Rio Grande Western coach #280. These historic train assets were originally purchased in the 1950s by residents of Boulder, led by University of Colorado professor and Boulder historian John B. Schoolland. The City of Boulder has an agreement with the CRRM that the train will be on display at the museum for up to 10 years.
For free entry into the museum, adults will need to provide proof of an address inside the city limits of Boulder with a photo of identification. For more information, call Carey Sager, Parks and Recreation Department, 303-441-3858. For more information about the CRRM, visit www.ColoradoRailroadMuseum.org
