Colorado August 2012 Leadville Colorado & Southern RR
Starting in the "highest incorporated city in North America," the Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad takes passengers along the old Denver, South Park & Pacific and Colorado & Southern lines. The journey is "out and back"—with the train backing up the whole way on the first leg, then going engine first for the return.
