The Glenwood Railroad Museum is located in the East wing of the historic Glenwood Springs Railroad Station. The station was built by the Denver & Rio Grande railroad in 1904, and our museum has been in operation since 2003.
Since our opening we have acquired a collection of railroad artifacts, pictures and books. In the first room you enter (Ladies Waiting Room) we have a large scale model railroad featuring Rio Grande steam and diesel-powered trains along with a gallery of historic, regional railroad pictures, and a collection of memorabilia and artifacts from the seven railroads that have served the Roaring Fork Valley. In the eastern-most (Motorcar-express) room you will find a 7.5″ gauge live steam locomotive, a Rio Grande rail motorcar (“speeder”), railroad semaphore signals removed from Glenwood Canyon, o-gauge toy trains, telegraphs, etc.
We have a gift shop selling books, t-shirts, railroad souvenirs and model railroad equipment.
We serve the community by conducting school tours and serving as the “point of first contact” for Amtrak visitors to our area.
