This one-of-a-kind facility, which took almost six years to build, features more than 600 railroad-related artifacts ranging from a Virginia and Truckee Railroad switch key to a full-sized Colorado and Southern wooden caboose.

Designed to appeal to visitors of all ages, the GFSM set record attendance marks in its first two years of operation and has quickly become one of the leading tourist attractions in Weld County.

The highlight of the museum is its huge 5,500 square foot operating miniature railroad. Visitors may actually stroll through this three dimensional creation, which features towns, rivers, bridges and 28,000 handmade trees, while the railroad is in operation.

The use of cameras is encouraged and guides are available to answer railroad-related questions and to point out unique aspects of the exhibit.
