Denver and Rio Grande Western train on Tennessee Pass

The battles with the Santa Fe over Raton Pass and the Royal Gorge are legendary. They set the course of the Rio Grande west toward Salt Lake City instead of south through Albuquerque to Mexico. The original narrow gauge mainline between Denver and Ogden via Tennessee Pass was completed in 1883. It was converted to standard gauge in 1890.

For this series we will follow Denver & Rio Grande Western trackage in Colorado from Minturn, over Tennessee Pass and down to the Royal Gorge.

All pictures in this series are on disks 37. You can purchase a disk and printout any of the pictures for your own use to dress up your train room or add color to a house that just cries out for more train pictures.
