|Pikes Peak By Rail
Lowest new price: $5.51
Lowest used price: $1.25
List price: $5.51
Author: Mountain Automation
Pike's Peak has been synonymous with the American Wild West since pioneers displayed "Pike's Peak or Bust" on their covered wagons. A cog railroad reached its summit in 1891. Still in operation, it is the highest cog railroad in the world, reaching 14,110 feet.
The dark beauty of the evergreens in Englemann Canyon, the bright Autumn gold of the aspens at Mountain View and the majestic rocky slopes at Windy Point are all more spectacular with bright red trains in view. Enjoy Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, deer, wild flowers, a waterfall and alpine lakes. Rare historic still photos and motion pictures chronicle the works of man along this rail line. The Half Way House Hotel, the offices of the Pike's Peak Daily News, the Alpine Laboratory & the town of Minnehaha are some of the historic sites, now only a memory along the rails. The oldest hydro-electric plant operating in the American West, steam locomotive water tanks and an old stone section house are still visible.
Passengers seldom see behind-the-scenes activities that keep the railroad running. Watch as the snow plow tackles 20-foot high snow drifts. Marvel at 1933 motion pictures of steam locomotives pushing plows into snow banks and the railroad's modern rotary plow launching 100 foot plumes of snow into the air. Watch as men tackle the back-breaking job of replacing railroad ties 12,000 feet above sea level. Shop scenes include removing diesel engines from the trains for maintenance. Coupled to a restored coach, built in 1891, the railroad's last steam locomotive makes its appearance.
Get 3 bonus programs: learn about Colorado's first mountain railroad on the "Georgetown Loop", enjoy the Ozark landscape as the conductor calls out "All Aboard for Eureka", experience the adventure of the Klondike gold rush in Canada and Akaska as you ride the "Scenic Railway of the World."
