Default For you Train buff folks

Came across this fun web site. Lots of old pics of the trains going through the Colorado backcountry.

The place where we used to live had the DSP&PRR narrow gauge tracks running on its western edge, on Platte Canyon Road.

It was officially known as the Denver, South Park, & Pacific Railroad, but popularly called the Darn Slow Pulling & Pretty Rough Riding.

I went up to Alpine Pass this summer. All I have to say is those folks who built those rails up there were nuts. They are true Hardcore people. The folks doing extreme sports today are weenies compared to them.
