COLORADO MODEL RAILROAD MUSEUM

Michelle Kempema discusses what visitors can experience at the Colorado Model Railroad Museum in Greeley, a 5,500 square foot museum focused on railroads with artifact displays, a massive 3D model railroad exhibit and a 1919 C&S Caboose, on Big Blend Radio.

Located in downtown Greeley, the Colorado Model Railroad Museum is a 5,500 sq. foot destination that features hundreds of railroad sceneries, more than 500 scale locomotives, 80 scale miles of train track, thousands of other handmade artifacts including around 28,000 handmade trees. The museum houses thousands of artifacts including a 1919 Colorado and Southern Caboose that you can tour.

Unlike typical model railroads, the museum utilizes an open air design with broad aisles and theatrical lighting, allowing visitors to clearly view the detailed scenery from just inches away. The Colorado Model Railroad Museum utilizes a dispatcher for train operations for the public. These quality characteristics have attracted visitors from all over the world, reaching as far as Australia and New Zealand.

The Colorado Model Railroad Museum was founded by Dave Trussell, whose dream was to build the ultimate model railroad layout. Many people contributed to build and maintain this intricate museum, all with the passion for model railroading and the vision of building something spectacular.

Take the opportunity to walk through a real caboose and peek into a multitude of miniature scenes that envelop your eyes with detailed, beautiful imagery. Visitors never leave the Colorado Model Railroad Museum disappointed.
