Colorado has a rich history of Narrow Gauge railroads which carried people and goods to and from the mining, lumber and farm towns of the Rocky Mountains. These railroads include the Denver and Rio Grande, Rio Grande Western, Colorado and Southern, Denver, South Park and Pacific, Rio Grande Southern and the Denver and Rio Grande Western. Fragments of these mountain railroads exists today as modern Standard Gauge railroads, or steam locomotive powered tourist trains (such as the the Durango and Silverton, Cumbres and Toltec and the Georgetown Loop Railroad).
Here you will find details about each railroad, the people who created and ran them, the places they went to, the obstacles they faced, and the equipment they used (including lettering and paint guides).
