Railroads: Colorado & Southern Railway


Colorado & Southern Train on "highline" near Birdseye Gulch

At this stop is information on the Colorado & Southern Railway. This was a narrow-gauge line established in the late-1800s. The Highline was the route between Leadville and Como. Currently a small portion of this line is operated as a tourist sight seeing train from Leadville to the northern part of Lake County.
