I, Zeb the Duck, went with mom and a friend to Golden, Colorado.   We went to the Colorado Railroad Museum.

Welcome to the Railroad Museum

Welcome to the Railroad Museum

This is a great museum.   There are lots of things to see and do inside and so many trains outside.   I like train engines.

Trains really are a lot bigger than ducks.   What is this?

Truck or train?   With a goose?

One of the Galloping Goose trains from the Rio Grande Southern.   A little like a truck and a little like a train.   Very nice.  Here is a park on the museum grounds.

It even has a miniature train.   Moving along to see more train cars, here is the car for the US. Mail.

It needed to be ready to deliver at the next town.   Remember that Colorado has mountains and mountains have snow.

Must keep the train tracks clear of snow drifts

This is a snow fighter.   This rotary plow is similar to a giant snowblower.   You can learn more about this museum at http://www.ColoradoRailroadMuseum.org    You will enjoy a visit to this museum.   I really liked it.
