This summer, I toured on four spectacular Colorado Railroads, The Pikes Peak Cog Railway, The Royal Gorge Route, The Georgetown Loop Railroad, and finally the Leadville Colorado and Southern (LC&S). The latest video features the LC&S. The tourist line opened on Memorial day, 1988. All locomotives, rail cars, cabooses, buildings, and track between Climax and Leadville were bought for $10 at auction by Stephanie and Kenneth Olsen. Only the depot and 0-8-0 steam engine #641 were bought from the city to complete the line. The line operates primarily in summer as the snow gets very deep in the mountains, and they lack a plow. They do, however, run in the fall so people can enjoy the spectacular scenery that central Colorado offers. Anyways, sit back and enjoy some great photography (and mediocre cinematography).
Below are the other two videos that I made, both Royal Gorge and the Pikes Peak Cog Railroad:
