Durango & Silverton Railroad Museum
While your group is visiting the Denver area, you should consider checking out the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum. The location was constructed in 1998. The group can examine antique trucks, tractors, a covered wagon, an Indian motorcycle, full-size steam locomotives, vintage coaches, and several model trains. Guests can ask staff members about the history of the railroad.
The museum has permanent displays that have fascinating artifacts and memorabilia. The displays have artifacts such as lanterns, locks and keys, photographs, and paintings. The Freedom is Not Free display has many tools that were used on the railroad. If you enjoy looking at memorabilia from the 1880s, the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum is the place to visit. You can check out interesting artifacts from that time period such as Steam locomotives and railroad cars. Group members will have the opportunity to explore the cab of a locomotive as part of the experience. You can also sit in the fireman and engineer’s seats and touch the levers and gauges that you have only seen from afar.
You and your group mates can take a ride in the cab of a locomotive. Visitors will have the opportunity to observe first-hand what it takes to operate a historic steam locomotive. The team can ride in an authentic K-28 or K-36 coal-fired, steam-powered pulling the regularly scheduled train. You can also ride in a motor car with a veteran Maintenance-of-Way crewmember. Visitors will experience a typical afternoon patrolling and maintaining the rails and right-of-way staying in constant communication with the train that is returning from Silverton.
