The Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado has a great collection of engines, rolling stock and buildings.
Two gems are seen here are separated by 60 years in terms of being built. CBQ 5629 is a 4-8-4 built in 1940 at the Burlington shops in Iowa. It ran fast freights between Denver and Alliance, Nebraska and was retired in 1963.
The smaller narrow-gauge engine with the unique Congdon stack is Denver, Leadville and Gunnison's #191, built in 1880 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, PA.
It worked between Denver and the mountain towns in Colorado, moving gold and silver ore, coal and timber.
