Colorado Railroad Museum auction Wine Train Fundraiser
The Colorado Railroad Museum will be operating the Colorado Wine & Music Train on Saturday, July 14. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Colorado Railroad Museum’s restoration projects.
The museum will offer tastings of Colorado wine along with live music. Ride behind the museum’s 1881, Baldwin built narrow-gauge ex-Denver & Rio Grande 2-8-0 No. 346, in one of their classic passenger cars, while sampling a variety of Colorado wines.
Collectible railroad memorabilia and Colorado wine baskets will be available through silent auction bidding along with other items.
The silent auction will feature a unique variety of items including vintage railroad china, lanterns and train excursions. And all proceeds will benefit the Colorado Railroad Historical Foundation’s ongoing mission of preserving Colorado rail heritage.
Live music from Colorado musicians will provide a relaxing setting as you stroll around the grounds that feature vintage locomotives, passenger cars and cabooses.
The cost is $40 in advance, $30 without wine tasting, and $50 at the door. For reservations and information call 303-279-4591.
