2006: Gold Camp Road

We took the car along the old Colorado Springs & Cripple Creek Railway roadbed which was also known as the Gold Camp Road on September 25. It’s a very nice drive and you will find a few on the old tunnels still intact and yes, you will drive through them in the process.

2006: Cripple Creek and Victor NG Railway

On September 24, 2006 we returned to the Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railway (2 Foot Gauge). It was a wonderful ride which starts and ends here at the Midland Terminal Railroad Depot that was built-in 1894 in Anaconda, CO. It was later moved to Bull Hill in 1928 and then here to Cripple Creek in 1968.

Back in September, we took a wonderful ride on the Manitou & Pike’s Peak Railway. Don’t be fooled by the sunny photograph as we ran into a SNOW Storm on the way to the top.

2006: Idaho Springs, Colorado

On September 4th, we headed up to Idaho Springs to have lunch at one of our favorite places; Buffalo Restaurant & Bar. Before leaving town we stop to get several shots of the Static Display of C&S #60 and Coach #70 that sits still today on its original tracks when this train operated in days gone by.
