Easter Train – April 8, 2023

On Saturday, April 8, the Pueblo Railway Museum kicked off its 2023 train ride season. We had a good turnout of riders to keep all of us busy. The train crew all gathered at 9am to start prepping for the day’s activities. With a quick check of our crossings, some grease on the curve, and a crew briefing, we left the D Street Shop right on time to make it to the Pueblo Union Depot for the start of our event. The car attendants and platform agent did a great job helping to load and unload passengers safely for each trip. We received a lot of positive feedback and comments from the riders. The train crew did a great job, making for another fun, safe day of running our trains.

Visitors to this event were treated to a special surprise. The Union Avenue Express, shown in one of the photos below, made a rare public appearance. Some of our museum volunteers recently spent some time giving this engine some much needed attention. They got it working again, much to the delight of our Easter event attendees!

Thanks to all of the volunteers who helped make this event a success:

Traincrew: Justin Cesar, Colin Mellin, Reid Adams, Tyler Seeley, Dwight Maxey

Platform: Kendall Crouch

Tickets/gift shop: Ron Roach

Last but not least, John McDowell kept kids entertained in the Bunny Hutch!
