Part of the Pueblo Railway Foundation, a 501(c)3 Charity: 301 WEST B STREET SUITE 100, PUEBLO, CO 81003 PHONE: 719-544-1773
All the equipment and railcars belong to either the Foundation (a 501(c)3 tax-deductible organization),
or are on loan by their owners who also are Museum members.

Until the Safer at Home order for Colorado is fully lifted, all activities at the
Pueblo Railway Museum are reduced.
Please check our facebook site for news when our status changes.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
While activities at the Museum are reduced, opportunities still exist for
learning about
railroad history and how the
railroads impact our lives today and yesterday. And, the history
is just a few clicks away, does not require facemasks to access, and is accessible from home.

Be aware, exposure to history seems dull at first, but can become addictive. Once travel
returns, you just might journey to some of the historical sites and find yourself
lost in thought about the people, technologies, and cultures that created the USA.

To get you started on this journey, we recommend starting with information about Colorado
railroads, since the PRF is based in Pueblo, Colorado, but also because of the wealth of history
(good and bad) that Colorado railroading impacted.

To get started, click here. We hope you enjoy the journey.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway
(M&PPCR)
, the Pueblo Railway Museum is now the caretaker of the massive snow removal
system used for many decades in clearing the cog railway to the top of Pikes Peak. The system
consists of a "compact" cog-driven locomotive, with a gigantic snow grater that would make
any homeowner envious. Several YouTube videos exist that show this system "in action".
An example is:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i1sD6766BY

The entire cog railway is under going a multi-year rebuild of all trackage and equipment,
but the current equipment will not operate on the track scale available from the only
manufacturer of cog railway equipment. While the tracks and cog rails are being
salvaged, nearly all equipment that
operated on these tracks have been donated to
railway historical endeavors across the country.

The PRF is honored that the Cog Railway Snow Blower is now part of our family of
Maintenance of Way
equipment,
after its many years of successful operations.

Additionally, while the Pike Peak Cog Railway is being rebuilt, a new Pikes Peak
Summit Complex
on the mountain top
is also being built.

When all is completed, there will be new tracks, new coaches, and a new facility to
greet visitors. Plus, spur interest in other Pikes Peak area attractions, like the PRF!
