Until the Stay at Home order for Colorado is lifted, all activities at the
Pueblo Railway Museum are suspended. Please check our facebook site
for news when our status changes.

While activities at the Museum are suspended, 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
restrictions are lifted, 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!

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

Pueblo Heritage Center
Our museum includes exhibits at the Pueblo Heritage Center (formerly called the Southeastern Colorado Heritage Museum). 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" Street.
