Event Description

WMMI's holiday themed railroad exhibit is open during regular museum hours and is included with our standard admission. We also have numerous related books for sale in our gift shop - a perfect holiday gift for the train enthusiast in your life! The exhibit includes several types and sizes of model train layouts, some of which are kept running so both children and adults can see how they work. On display is a handmade metal train with a mining theme. The engine and cars were made by the owner and employees of the Card Iron Works in Denver, which manufactured mining equipment from 1892 until closing in 1969. This handmade set dates from just before World War II. The train exhibit closes on January 27, 2018. Of special interest to model railroad enthusiasts, the museum has for sale an extensive array of model railroad accessories, including some model train sets, landscaping materials (buildings, figures of people and animals, light poles, etc.), track, books, DVDs, and VHS tapes, all at unbeatable prices. So stop by before everything is gone!
