The Animas Museum, 3065 West Second Ave., will host a grand opening of “Working on the Railroad” on Saturday.
The exhibit will be devoted to the stories of everyday people who helped build and maintain the railroad lines in Southwest Colorado.
The event will include a panel discussion from 1 to 3 p.m. featuring experts Jeff Johnson and Paul Connors, both of whom have a combined total of more than 80 years of experience with several former Denver & Rio Grande West lines and currently work with the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.
The museum’s winter hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, visit www.animasmuseum.org or call 259-2402.
