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.

    TM has reported Colorado wildfires threaten rail service:
    “In Southwest Colorado, the Cumbres & Toltec and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad both reported no problems from the fires, and said they don’t anticipate any interruption in their operations. San Luis & Rio Grande and Rio Grande Scenic Railroad General Manager Matt Abbey told Trains News Wire that the fires were about two hours north of the railroad’s operating area, and he expects they will have no effect on passenger or freight service.”
