Experience Transportation History!
The Forney Museum of Transportation is a one-of-a-kind collection of over 600 artifacts relating to historical transportation. It began 60 years ago with a single 1921 Kissel, but soon expanded to include vehicles of all kinds. Today it includes not just vehicles, but also buggies, motorcycles, steam locomotives, aircraft, carriages, rail equipment, fire apparatus, public transportation, sleighs, bicycles, toys & diecast models, vintage apparel and much, much more!
Our collection highlights include: Union Pacific ‘Big Boy’ Steam Locomotive #4005, Amelia Earhart’s 1923 Kissel ‘Gold Bug’, Forney Locomotive, Colorado & Southern Caboose, 1923 Hispano-Suiza, 1913-53 Indian Motocycle Collection, Denver & Rio Grande Dining Car, Stutz Fire Engine, 1888 Denver Cable Car, 1923 Case Steam Tractor, 1817 Draisenne Bicycle, 500 Piece Matchbox Collection, and more!
The Forney Museum of Transportation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which exists to collect, preserve, and exhibit items of artistic, historical and technological interest relating to transportation for the purposes of education and personal enrichment.
FORNEY MUSEUM COVID-19 UPDATE:
Although the Forney Museum of Transportation has put into place strict cleaning and disinfecting practices and our
facility comprises a large area with a great deal of open space, easily permitting the recommended “social distancing”, the Museum, at the urging of several other non-profit organizations and based on recommendations from both Denver Mayor Hancock and Governor Polis, has decided to temporarily close to visitors. At this time the Forney Museum will be closed now through April 30th, at which time we will re-evaluate the status of COVID-19 and the recommendations of local, state and federal health agencies.
The Forney Museum strongly supports the community and our thousands of annual visitors, not only locally,
but internationally and we recognize this is a challenging time for many, with a great deal of uncertainty, however we encourage everyone to remain calm and follow directives as they are issued by health officials; not the potentially misleading, hysteria driven mis-information and falsehoods disseminated on social media and other less reputable platforms. In the interim, we encourage anyone who may be exhibiting any symptoms associated with this virus, who may already be ill, has knowingly come in contact with an infected individual or has traveled to a highly impacted area, please take all appropriate precautions to guard against the additional spread of COVID-19 and follow the recommendations of health care providers.
The Forney Museum looks forward to once again welcoming visitors; hopefully in the not too distant future.
Please continue to check our website and other online postings to see our latest status.
In the meantime, please consider becoming a member or making a donation to help the Forney Museum through this difficult period. Your ongoing support is invaluable. Thank you and remain well.
Please check back for updates.

I beloved riding my bike as a kid. As a result of the cylinder 28 is mounted such that it may rotate in the housings 29, because the bow 10 rotates, the tip of the plate 18 might stay involved throughout the whole expanse of the face 28 b by virtue of the rotating of the cylinder 28 within the housings 29.
The lowering of the pawl 31 by rotation in the clockwise route about its cross member 32 releases the bow 10 which, under the motion of the flex plate 18, is returned within the counterclockwise route in regards to the pins 14. The transverse department of the bow 10 covers and fastens onto the rear snout 17 of the cleat 6. The cleat 6 and the shoe to the underside of which this cleat is fastened are then connected to the pedal.
The plate 18 could also be fabricated from composite materials, particularly a material consisting of glass fibers or carbon fibers certain by a resin and directed essentially orthogonal to the spindle three. In such a case, the plate 18 is ideally of rectangular form to restrict the risks of delamination of the plate in the region of contact between its marginal edges and the bow 10. However, when the fibers have crossed orientations, the isostress trapezium form could also be envisioned.
, characterised in that it contains a pawl (31) able to preserving the retaining member (9) in an open position, when the cleat (6) is disengaged, in opposition to the action of a leaf spring (36), and of releasing this retaining member (9) when the cleat is engaged, the pawl (31) being produced within the type of a body of which one transverse edge (32) is engaged in a housing (33) of the pedal body and constitutes the pivot pin for the pawl, the other end (34) of the pawl resting against the retaining member (9).
The pedal advantageously comprises a pawl able to keeping the retaining member in an open position, when the cleat is disengaged, in opposition to the action of a leaf spring, and of releasing this retaining member when the cleat is engaged; the pawl is produced in the type of a frame of which one transverse edge is engaged in a housing of the pedal body and constitutes the pivot pin for the pawl, the opposite finish of the pawl resting in opposition to the retaining member.
To make the pedal simpler to meeting, a prepared-to-assemble subassembly is advantageously fashioned by fitting the leaf spring 36 and the flex plate 18 into the opening 35 a of the cap beforehand, while the bracket 23 is also fitted into the cap, beneath the plate 18. When the leaf spring 36 is made as a single piece with the pawl 31, the bar 35 finds itself clamped slightly between the cross member 32 and the leaf 36, serving to the subassembly, which then also includes the pawl 31, to stay together.…
