The Moffat Road Railroad Museum

The museum is an ongoing process. Information will be updated as it becomes available. Please check back often as we will be adding to the site and updating our progress over the next few months.

Great Western Depot to become Museum buildingNEW! Historic Depot to Become the Official Museum Building
The museum has a great opportunity to save the historic Great Western Depot from Loveland, built in 1901. With the help of many great volunteers and local businesses, this building will be carefully taken apart, transported to Granby, and rebuilt as the official Moffat Road Railroad Museum.The Depot will feature a visitor center, gift shop, and small display area. With this new focus, the museum can continue to enhance the Interpretive Center with new and existing projects.

Model Railroad Christmas Display
Every year, the Grand County Model Railroad Club creates a model railroad display for the Christmas holiday season, which is open to public viewing at the modular building next to the Soccer Dome in Granby in December. See our Christmas Display page for the viewing schedule and photo gallery of some of the scenes on the model railroad.

Work Days at the Interpretive Center
The Moffat Road Railroad Museum is working on the equipment restoration for the Interpretive Center. The museum currently has three pieces of railroad equipment located at the Railroad Interpretive Park next to the Kaibab Park ball fields in Granby, Colorado.The Moffat Road Railroad Museum Interpretive Center includes a 1905 Passenger Car, which was transported from Rhode Island.The 1915 era railroad hand-cart shed from Hot Sulphur Springs was saved from demolition to become part of the Interpretive Center. There is also a 1923 all wood, red UP caboose from Nebraska, which was the first piece of railroad equipment for the museum. Restoration projects are underway, so if anyone is interested in helping with any of the projects, they should contact Dave Naples 970-281-9094. We need all the help we can get!!

The museum is located next to Kaibab Park, near the bridge at the southern entrance to Granby. Kaibab Park features two softball fields, one baseball field, a kids fishing pond with handicapped access, picnic shelter with four tables, a playground, and walking trail to the Fraser River. There is currently a Railroad Interpretive Center, complete with outdoor life size displays of steam engine, caboose, and railroad artifacts and equipment. Still in progess is the official museum building, which will be setup inside the historic Depot from Loveland. It is a place where history, art, education, community involvement and pride can all come together.
