GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A well-loved railroad museum in Glenwood Springs will close for good next week.

Earlier this month, voters in Garfield County rejected a ballot measure that would have increased property taxes to fund the local historical district. There was some thought that might have saved the museum.
