RELIVE HISTORY
FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF RAILROADING

Fun ~ Interesting ~ Educational ~ For All Ages

We invite all, rail buff or not, resident or visitor to visit  the Pueblo Railway Museum where you can see, touch,enter, and sometimes ride the locomotives and cars that made railroad history. We are home to the massive AT&SF #2912, the largest steam locomotive of its type built, and three operating GP-7 diesel locomotives.  Our goal is historic preservation of railroad artifacts and history and making them available to our guests. Educational programs are being implemented. 

Rail Yard Museum and Gift Shop
The Pueblo Railway Museum includes locomotives, passenger, freight and special-purpose cars in the rail yards behind and a short distance to the west of the historic 1889 Pueblo Union Depot. The Depot, privately owned and rented for stores, restaurants and offices, is a national historic landmark and the hallways are a museum themselves. Our gift shop and visitors center is in a former caboose, later used as a training car, and offers clothing and other rail-related merchandise for all ages. The gift shop plus several of the cars are sometimes open to the public and can be visited at other times by contacting our on-site guide, Ron Roach at 719-251-5024.  

Train Watching
Tracks of the main lines of both the UP and the BNSF pass alongside our museum yard tracks. This is part of the famous "joint line". More than 25 trains per day pass through.  A great photo location for railfans.  We see many unusual things such as continuous welded rail trains, hauling rail one quarter mile long from the large rail welding plant in Pueblo and we see all new locomotives and other equipment enroute to and from the "test track" facility northeast of Pueblo operated by the American Association of Railroads for the Federal Railway Administration

Heritage Center
Our museum includes exhibits at the Southeastern Colorado Heritage Center. Hours are 10AM to 4PM Tues. thru Sat. Displays of railroad artifacts are complemented with interpretive information showing how each item was used and the history of its development. Exhibits are rotated from time to time to reflect popular themes as they relate to railroading. Besides the rail area of the museum, the exhibits of the Heritage Center itself and the other member historical societies are very interesting and worth the visit. The Heritage Center is across the street from the Depot at 201 West "B" Stree
