Colorado Railroad Museum

Golden, Colorado

While I was in Colorado last month, I had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours at the Colorado Railroad Museum. It so happened that I arrived during the "Day Out With Thomas the Train" weekend at the museum, and there were hundreds of children with parents and grandparents roaming around the grounds or waiting for a ride on Thomas the Train.

The young train enthusiast in the photo above contemplates the size of an EMD Model F9A diesel locomotive. Built in 1955, this locomotive was retired in 1984 and sold to the Colorado Railroad Museum in 1996 by Southern Pacific for one dollar.
