Description Oversized color postcard of the Colorado Railroad Museum. Front features a photographic image of an engine and car on tracks with a building in the background. Reverse features the caption "Engine #346, oldest in Colorado, is operated occasionally at the Museum. Built in 1881 for the Denver & Rio Grande R.R., a narrow gauge then, it has operated over what was for years the largest narrow gauge system I the U.S. The coach, also a veteran of the 1880s, once ran on thru trains Denver to Salt Lake City and Ogden, to Durango and Santa Fe. In recent years it was used on the famed "Silverton" from Durango to Silverton which operates summers only."
