The Colorado Railroad Museum

by Chris Guenzler

I parked at the Colorado Railroad Museum and went inside to get into the Museum. After that was taken care of I went outside to start taking pictures of this unique railroad museum's equipment.

Right outside the door across from the Richardson Library is this steam train display.
