From the Greeley Freight Station Museum's family
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been touched by the recent floods in Colorado and for those downstream still in harm's way. Some of our own volunteers have suffered damages and losses, but luckily so far the losses are restricted to material items. It will take time to clean up and rebuild and we wish everyone the strength needed to get through these hard times.
We are blessed to announce that the museum itself was spared from major damage and will continue to be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays if people are looking for a place to get away from reality for a few hours.

Something tells me the Yard Boss is not bragging about the size of the last fish he caught.
Rave reviews from all over the world are flooding in as the Greeley Freight Station Museum enjoys its second anniversary of existence located hard by the mainline of the Union Pacific Railroad in Greeley, Colorado.
This one-of-a-kind facility features over 600 railroad-related artifacts ranging from a Virginia and Truckee Railroad switch key to a full-sized Colorado and Southern wooden Caboose available for examining both inside and out.
Designed to appeal to visitors of all ages and nationalities, the GFSM has set record attendance marks in its first two years of operation and has become the leading year-round tourist attraction in Weld County, Colorado. The highlight of the museum is its huge, 5,500 sq. ft. operating miniature railroad dubbed "the finest model railroad I’ve ever seen", by the 30-year senior editor of Model Railroader magazine, Jim Hediger, Milwaukee, WI.
Visitors may actually stroll through this three dimensional creation while the railroad is in operation. They are surrounded by rugged mountains with handmade features including 16,000 fir, 8,000 deciduous and 4,000 aspen trees. Rivers abound. Scenery becomes three dimensional art. The use of cameras is encouraged and guides are available to answer railroad-related questions and to point out unique aspects of this one-of-a-kind modeling wonder. Take a visual tour through this amazing railroad in miniature via the GFSM website, then plan of visiting the museum in person the next time you visit Colorado.
