Dinosaur Express Train at the Colorado Railroad Museum

IMG_7409Colorado 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.

Ride and discover the Dinosaur Express Train on Saturday, July 19 at the Colorado Railroad Museum from 10:00AM – 4:00PM.

Make fresh tracks through prehistory as children sift through sand for fossils, pan for fools gold, paint dinosaur footprints and enjoy other prehistoric activities.

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

Follow the dinosaur tracks around the Museum’s 15-acre railyard and listen to the adventurous stories of these prehistoric reptiles during our dinosaur storytime.

Dinosaur Express Train is in collaboration with the Morrison Natural History Museum, Dinosaur Ridge and Dinosaur Resource Center.
