Colorado Model Railroad Museum
The Colorado Model Railroad Museum is one of the finest miniature accomplishments in the world. This 5,500 sq. feet masterpiece required over five years and 280,000 volunteer hours to complete. Located at 680 10th Street in Greeley, Colorado, this one-of-a-kind museum has hundreds of railroad scenes, 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.
Typically, the museum encounters around 20,000 visitors from 40 – 50 different countries each year! 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.
