ALAMOSA DEPOT
ALAMOSA, COLORADO -USA
Location: ALAMOSA, CO
Description:
  • RAILROAD DEPOT
Comments/Directions:
Former D&GRW depot. The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad arrived in Alamosa on July 4, 1878. The 1893 wood depot that burned in 1907. The current depot replaced it in 1908 with a buff-colored brick building with red tile hipped roof in the Spanish architecture of the time. On the National Register of Historic Places, the exterior remains much like the original, except a 1930 extension created an L-shaped building; plus the 2009 interior renovations now accommodate both ticketing/boarding for the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad and the Colorado Welcome Center, where visitors can obtain maps, travel information, and tourist info. Rides on the Scenic Railroad are east to La Veta or south to Antonito and the Cumbres & Toltec rr. These 154 miles of former D&RG lines now operate as the San Luis & Rio Grande rr (established in 2003 by Rail America / now Permian Basin Railways). Through the 1930's, D&RG was a mainline railroad and a major junction; but with decreasing rail travel by the 1950's the depot was sold to the County. A division headquarters with extensive railroad yards, a large roundhouse and shops, the D&RG narrow-gauge routes had interconnected with standard gauge at the yards. Cargo included supplies and building materials and mining equipment for the burgeoning regional economy plus shipments out of crops of the San Luis valley, gold and silver ore originating from Silverton, Creede, Summitville, etc. and timber harvested from the San Juan Mountains and New Mexico.

  • MINIATURE STEAM 15 IN.
Email Address
Comments/Directions:
On May 21, 2004 my dad steamed up his engine for his first run around his own railroad. On the 22nd we joined him for some fun. The engine is a 1904 Cagney that originally was built for the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. That year they used miniature steam railroads to shuffle attendees around the large fair grounds. When my dad got it, it was in pretty rough shape. 7 short years later you can see the results. He hasn't come up with a name for his railroad yet so I will use this one until he does. You will also find an inordinate amount of pictures but since it is my website I guess I can get away with it.

The Phantom Canyon Brewing Company opened in December 1993, after almost three years in the planning. Phantom Canyon is located in the historic Cheyenne Building, which was built in 1901. Originally the local offices of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, the building was renovated in 1909 and re-opened as The Cheyenne Hotel (owned and operated by the Shafer family until 1963). The Cheyenne Building was the first downtown restaurant to be placed on the National Register of Historical Places and is located on the first corner of the city. All addresses and street plans originate from the intersection of Pikes Peak and Cascade. The building is named after Cheyenne Mountain and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne Indian Tribe (whose stone visage looks over the front entrance). Stop by and see this grand old building, take a sip of what's brewing. You will be glad you did.

DEL NORTE DEPOT
120 SPRUCE ST.
DEL NORTE, COLORADO 81132 -USA
Location: ONE-HALF MILE NORTH OF U.S. RTE. 160 IN TOWN
Description:
  • RAILROAD DEPOT
Comments/Directions:
The Denver & Rio Grande Railroad reached Del Norte in 1881. The original 1881 wood depot was replaced in 1911 and it remained in use until 1970 when it became the town's government offices. Del Norte was incorporated in 1872 and became the county seat in 1874. It served as the shipping point for freight generated by the regional mines at Summitville and Creede. The D&RG eventually reached Creede, but those unprofitable operations were cut back to Del Norte by 1889. Ore continued to be hauled intermittently until 1985 when the last Creede mine closed. UP continued the "Creede Local" service until the sawmill at South Fork ended operations in 2002. The South Fork-Creede segment to be abandoned by UP in January 1999, was purchased by the D&RGHF. It currently operates as the "Wagon Wheel Gap Route" out of South Fork. The remaining segment between South Fork back east to Alamosa was sold in 2003 to the San Luis & Rio Grande rr (Permian Basin Rwy. holding company).

The building exterior will not be changing but the interior is going to be reworked to support it's new role in the multi-modal transit hub known as Denver Union Terminal. The model railroads in the basement are expected to remain accessible during most phases of the project.

Formerly the Sushi Boat. Boats that used to float tantalizing dishes of sushi by guests at the sushi bar has been replaced by rail! A G-scale D&RGW K-27 pulls a "unit train" of sushi on D&RW flat cars which is helped by a large scale D&RG SD-45. Guests can pull small plates of sushi off the train or order from the menu, or both. As far as sushi goes, the chef has many variations on standard sushi and they are quite tasty! The train just adds the "wasabi on the tuna roll" to give this fun restaurant and extra kick!

Rail fans will delight in the Uintah Railway exhibit and the recreated train depot. The reconstructed Whiskey Creek Trestle is part of a display of cars, an engine and caboose. From 1904-1939, the Uintah ran from Mack, Colorado to Dragon, Utah. It hauled one of the world’s few commercial sources of gilsonite, a black, lustrous asphalt. Members of the Grand Valley Model Railroaders have displays of HO scale trains representing historic rail lines that ran through Western Colorado.

Comments/Directions:
Rave reviews from all over the world are flooding in as the Greeley Freight Station Museum enjoys its second (as of 2012) anniversary of existence located hard by the mainline of the Union Pacific Railroad in Greeley, Colorado. This one-of-a-kind facility features over 600 railroad-related artifacts ranging from a Virginia and Truckee Railroad switch key to a full-sized Colorado and Southern wooden Caboose available for examining both inside and out. Designed to appeal to visitors of all ages and nationalities, the GFSM has set record attendance marks in its first two years of operation and has become the leading year-round tourist attraction in Weld County, Colorado. The highlight of the museum is its huge, 5,500 sq. ft. operating miniature railroad dubbed "the finest model railroad I’ve ever seen", by the 30-year senior editor of Model Railroader magazine, Jim Hediger, Milwaukee, WI. Visitors may actually stroll through this three dimensional creation while the railroad is in operation. They are surrounded by rugged mountains with handmade features including 16,000 fir, 8,000 deciduous and 4,000 aspen trees. Rivers abound. Scenery becomes three dimensional art. The use of cameras is encouraged and guides are available to answer railroad-related questions and to point out unique aspects of this one-of-a-kind modeling wonder. Take a visual tour through this amazing railroad in miniature via the GFSM website, then plan of visiting the museum in person the next time you visit Colorado.

Location: CORNER OF MAIN ST. AND 3RD.
Phone: 720-652-9719
Description:
  • RAILROAD DEPOT
Comments/Directions:
That station belonged the Denver, Utah & Pacific Railroad. This line was Moffat's first attempt to build a line due west out of Denver. It has kind of an odd history as the "Branch Line" from Denver to Lyons was built first and the main line from Hallack Jct (about 100th and Wadsworth Blvd) to Salt Lake City via (get this) Rollins Pass, Granby, and Rangely, Colo. The line was surveyed but never built. Their proposed main line missed Grand Junction completely. The DU&P was purchased by the CB&Q and Standard gauged using he old roadbed of the UP subsidiary the Denver, Western & Pacific Railroad from Burns Junction (just west of Broomfied) via Lafayette, Erie and Idaho Creek into Longmont. This depot was also used for many years by the CB&Q as a freight office which is why it survived so long. I remember rattling by it when I was about 18 when a friend of mine (who was a CB&Q engineer) took me for a ride on the "Buckwheat Branch", which is what the branch to Lyons was known as. The depot was still being used by the CB&Q then for MOW.
(above was contributed by Rick S. Thanks for the info Rick!)
The depotis used as The Oriental Express Asian Seafood Market. Their number is above.

Palmer Lake is where the D&RG and the Santa Fe used to squeeze through the narrow valley on their way to Denver from Colorado Springs via 2 separate lines. Later this became one of the most infamous segments of shared trackage after court ordered rail sharing. The former Santa Fe line south of here into the Springs has been converted into a bike/hiking trail. North the 2 lines still are separate. Here they combine for the rest of the trip into the Springs and provide for some great train watching.

Comments/Directions:
In the 1880's, the Denver and Rio Grande Railway was building at a torrid pace throughout Colorado. One of the most beautiful areas was on the headwaters of the Rio Grande River at a mountain pass known as Wagon Wheel Gap. Hot springs in this area, as well as the cool summers at its 8,500 foot elevation, made it a perfect resort area for the friends and guests of General William Jackson Palmer, then President of the D&RGRR. A rail line was extended to this spot from the end of the line in Del Norte. With mining demands high, the line was extended to the mountain mining town of Creede a few years later. This line was active through 1985 when the last few cars of ore were carried out. The line that carried hundreds of thousands of passengers and millions of dollars worth of silver ore fell quiet. Until the spring of 2000 when the Denver & Rio Grande Historical Foundation purchased this 21.6 mile line of scenic mountain meadows, rivers and 1,000 foot cliffs. This area is well known for its scenic vistas, historic towns and mines, fishing, hunting and just a wonderful get-away-from-it-all place. Reservations to ride on this historic line during the 2009 season may be placed through the Denver & Rio Grande Railway Historical Foundation at the number listed above! The depot from Hooper was moved to South Fork and has been restored to service for the line after spending nearly 50 years near Center, CO.
