This season you owe it to yourself to visit the Moffat Railroad Museum, “Christmas Train” exhibit in Granby.  The traditional model train exhibit has a permanent home in Kaibab Park at the Railroad Museum site.

Dave and Kathy Naples, Wally Baird and at least 15 other volunteers have been working for months on this years layout and design.  Dave Naples, president of the local Model Railroad Club said, “We have thousands of hours into this years layout and the best part, we don’t have to take it down!”

This year’s display is larger than years past and features inspired by Winter Park Resort and the Moffat Tunnel. There are towns, railyards, tunnels, bridges and multiple ski runs and two chairlifts.

If you have kids or maybe you are a kid at heart, stop by.  The exhibit is open on weekends and select weekdays through the new year.
