Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cripple Creek and Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad ( RR) is a narrow gauge heritage railroad that operates seasonal tourist trains between Cripple Creek and Victor, Colorado. The railroad uses a revitalized section of the original Midland Terminal Railway and the Florence and Cripple Creek Railway. As of the 2008 season, the railroad operates three coal-fired narrow gauge steam locomotives. Engine #1 is an 0-4-4-0 Orenstein & Koppel articulated mallet built in 1902. Engine #2 is a 0-4-0 Henschel built in 1936. Engine #3 is an 0-4-0 H. K. Porter tank built in 1927. Engine #4 is the W. G. Bagnall 0-4-4-0T, built in 1947; this engine is currently in restorations. The 5th engine is a 1951 General Electric, four wheel, Diesel-Electric engine. The engine is currently being used by the CCVNG track crew. This engine was originally a battery operated for underground mining at the Idarado Mine near Telluride.show more
