Event Details

Bring the family, and enjoy an afternoon at the Colorado Railroad Museum! Mid-January through mid-May, we offer train rides every Saturday. Late May through mid-August, train rides are offered Thursday-Sunday. Saturday train rides then continue into late October, interrupted in September by three Day Out With Thomas event weekends.

Train rides operate between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., with half-hourly departures. The ride takes you on a loop around the Museum’s 15-acre Rail Yard, and lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes. There are lots of other activities to enjoy at the Museum as well, such as exploring our outdoor railyard, viewing our indoor exhibits, and marveling at a massive HO Scale model railroad layout as well as an impressive, outdoor Garden Railroad. All Aboard for adventure!

Train rides are offered for a small fee in addition to your Museum Admission: $4 adults and seniors, $2 ages 2-17, under age 2 is free on a ticketed adult’s lap. Members ride free! Capacity is limited, thus we recommend advance ticket purchase to reserve your preferred departure time. Please check our website for the latest information regarding masking or other requirements.

For 2022, we will be operating open-air coaches (also closed ones in colder weather) pulled by a vintage diesel locomotive on most operating days. A steam locomotive may be substituted on selected dates! Our popular “Galloping Goose” rail motorcar will likely not be operating during the 2022 season due to ongoing concerns related to social distancing.
