Ridgway Railroad Museum Newsletter

One of the benefits of membership in the Ridgway Railroad Museum is our monthly newsletter which contains articles on Railroading in the San Juan Mountains as well as Museum news.


The Ridgway Railroad Museum is now selling a CD containing pdf files of all of the monthly Museum Newsletters from April 2001 through December 2010 (117 separate newsletters). Here is your chance to get all of the great stories that have been printed in our newsletters over the past decade. You can buy the CDs at the museum for $25 each or you can order them via our PayPal account at $30 each which includes shipping. If you order them using PayPal, please be sure and indicate that the payment is for the "Newsletter CD." See "Membership" on the museum's website for details on how to order by PayPal. Please respect those items in the newsletter that are copyrighted materials.

In many respects the newsletters are the written history of the month-to-month activities of the Museum. Want to follow the restoration of D&RGW Caboose 0575 or Galloping Goose 4? Want to learn more of the history of the narrow gauge railroads and the railroad men of Ouray County? The newsletters document these events.
