We happened to be in Leadville today and decided to have lunch by the railroad depot in the off chance that the train might depart or arrive while we were there. We were about halfway through with lunch and the train returned to the depot. The website for the train is well done and is located at leadville-train.com and they offer many different combinations of train rides during the spring, summer and fall.

At the depot they have an old railroad steam engine with a coal tender on display.

The image below is of the informational sign posted on the tender.

It appears that back in the early 1900s railroad engines had to clear their own snow. Evidenced by the massive snowplow on the front of the old steam engine.

Below we are hoping you will find a video of the Leadville Colorado and Southern train returning to the depot after it’s 2 1/2 our trip up the mountain and back.
