Got Style? Railroads & Design <p>Often leading the pack as far as what was "stylish." railroads have echoed the fashion of their day. From rail cars to benches, dining plates to lamps passengers expected and often got the best.

Winter Wonderlands: Scenes from Howard Fogg’s Holiday Cards <p>Acclaimed railroad artist Howard Fogg produced a large body of work over his lifetime. Leanin' Tree Publishers used many of them to produce holiday cards for the public. Railroad modelers have chosen three of Fogg's cards from the museum's collection to produce 3 dimensional dioramas inspired by the scene depicted. They still inspire today!</p> 17155 W. 44th Ave. Golden, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
