Welcome to another Big Train Tour at the Colorado Railroad Museum! This week, we’ll be taking a look at a diesel locomotive hailing from a brand-name railroad—Coors! From 1981 to 2004, this locomotive was a fixture at the Coors plant right here in Golden. But prior to its Coors service, it was part of the story of the now-vanished Rock Island railroad, dating back to the late 1930s and the early introduction of diesel locomotives on America’s railroads. Today this bright-red switching locomotive is proudly displayed at the Museum, offering guests the chance to sit in its cab and learn how a diesel-electric locomotive functions. Let’s step back in time now, and examine the history of Coors Brewery locomotive number C988.
Join Colorado Railroad Museum Executive Director Paul Hammond as he explores the history behind the Museum’s unique railroad collection!
In 2022, the Museum is offering Train Rides every Saturday mid-January through Labor Day, and also during the month of October. Follow us on Pinterest, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.
