The Denver Society of Model Railroaders is an organization dedicated to the accurate construction and realistic operation of model trains in 1:48 scale. Our members own and operate the Colorado Midland Railway, a true 1:48 scale standard gauge and narrow gauge model railroad. The CMR design found its origins in the prototype Colorado Midland Railway that traversed Colorado from Colorado Springs to Grand Junction and interchanged with the legendary Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad. Today’s Colorado Midland Railway is a dynamic model railroad experience that is focused on America’s western railroads. Model trains and operations reflect the railroads of Colorado’s past, present, and future.

The basement of Denver’s Union Terminal (Union Station) houses one of Denver’s most exciting, historical attractions – the oldest and one of the largest O Scale (1/4 inch = 1 foot)model railroad layouts in the country. The “Colorado Midland Railway” layout encompasses 6500 square feet, spans over 70 years, and, continues to be maintained and expanded by club members of the Denver Society of Model Railroaders. The “original” Colorado Midland Railway was abandoned in the early 1920’s so the club has taken a few liberties with the rolling stock, including diesels and mid-20th century railroad cars, which are lettered, for this now defunct railroad. The model railroad reflects the landscape of Colorado spanning our members’ interests from the transition period of the 1950’s to the present era of hi-tech diesel locomotives. Club members privately own most of the equipment; however the equipment owned by The Club is lettered for the Colorado Midland Railway.
