Colorado Railroad Museum

While in Denver, my friend Stan and I went to visit the Colorado Railroad Museum (www.coloradorailroadmuseum.org).

The museum was established in 1959 to preserve a record of Colorado’s flamboyant railroad era, particularly the state’s pioneering narrow gauge mountain railroads. It has a large collection of 3-ft narrow gauge rolling stock. Plus it has the oldest known surviving standard gauge steam locomotive. But the most impressive to me is that they have the oldest known “operational” steam locomotive as well!

With all that gritty iron work, I thought it would be fun to try a few HDR images. And of course, how can you not shoot a few old-school black-and-whites as well. 🙂 We had a BLAST! I hope you enjoy…
