Colorado Railroad Museum’s Dinosaur Express Train

. June 21, 2013

Colorado railroads helped unearth many fossils as railroad tracks were laid. Construction crews often exposed these unusual and fascinating bones as they were digging and laying railroad ties. Trains were then used to transport these ‘stone bones’ to museums around Colorado and throughout the U.S.

Be greeted by multiple dinosaurs whose skeletons have been found all along the Front Range.
