Colorado Model Railroad Museum at the Greeley Freight Station
Running counter to the belief that the art of model railroading is dead, the Colorado Model Railroad Museum at the Greeley Freight Station keeps bringing in more and more visitors each year. At its center is a lifelike sprawling model train layout that captivates every nearby onlooker. Beyond it, there are more than 600 rail-related artifacts to look at and to never, ever try to eat.
Eye Catcher: The museum's centerpiece, a 5,500-square-foot model railroad so vast and detailed it prompted the senior editor of Modern Railroader magazine to proclaim it "the finest model railroad I've ever seen." Visitors can walk around and through it, admiring the handmade trees, the realistic landscaping, and building replicas made from scratch.
Permanent Mainstay: The collection of artifacts includes a brakeman's lantern from the '40s, antique and operational Union Pacific and Sante Fe clocks, and what staffers dub the World's Smallest Train, with an engine about an inch long.
Don't Miss: a fully restored wooden C&S Caboose, which visitors can explore inside and out
Hands-On Experiments: Kids can play The Eye-Spy game: as they walk around, they seek out the location of dinosaurs, yeti, and the occasional Ewok hiding out in the layout
