Remarks & Notes 
The Colorado Railroad Museum, 60th Anniversary.

The steam team at the Colorado Railroad Museum pose for a portrait with all 4 steam locomotives in front of the roundhouse on July 14th, 2019 after a long weekend of celebrating 60 years. D&RGW #491, RGS #20 (not yet finished), D&RGW #346, and #318 and volunteers and staff of the Colorado Railroad Museum pose for the lens.

Courtesy: Trains Magazine “ The Colorado Railroad Museum will celebrate its 60th anniversary with events this Thursday through Sunday, July 11-14. Events include rides on a Galloping Goose railcar, a Friday banquet, a Saturday “parade of locomotives,” rides behind a steam locomotive on Saturday and Sunday, and other special events. A VIP Weekend Ticket is available covering all events. Founders Bob Richardson and Corneilius W. Hauck turned the first dirt at the museum in 1959. “There were a lot of railroads, especially narrow gauge railroads, that were going out of business in the late 1950s and they wanted to preserve Colorado railroad history,” museum Executive Director Donald Tallman said in a press release. “There are people from all over the world who love Colorado railroad history because it is so different and so unique. We say that we bring Colorado railroad history to life.”
