From DSP&P to C&S Mar 1997 21:41:07 -0700 From: Rick Steele Subject: C & S Narrow Gauge History It has been asked by more than one person what relation the Colorado Central is to the Denver, South Park and Pacific. I can see that an explaination is in the offing. Believe it or not, the Colorado and Southern was made up of 31 predicessors (including name changes) and affiliates. Some were Standard Gauge, some were 3' gauge and some were both. The earliest predicessor to the C&S narrow gauge was a Railroad called the Colorado and Clear Creek Railroad company. This was incorporated by and act of Colorado Territory on February 9, 1865, the name was changed twice, finally ending up as the Colorado Central Rail Road Company. This company built Standard Gauge lines from Golden To Denver and From Golden to Cheyenne, Wyoming (through another subsidiary). This line also built 3' gauge lines from Golden to Central City and from Forks Creek to Georgetown. The only affiliation that the CC had with the South Park was that they both were later controlled by the Union Pacific Rail Road. The line from Georgetown to Bakerville, Colorado (via the Loop) was built by a UP subsidiary, The Georgetown, Breckenridge and Leadville Railway Company, which was incorporated in Colorado on February 23, 1881 and owned no equipment but was operated as a part of the Colorado Central Rail Road. There were plans to extend the GB&L over Loveland Pass, via the unbuilt "Summit Tunnel" to connect with the DSP&P at Keystone, Colorado. The Colorado Central and GB&L, along with 10 other Railroad companies were merged into a company called The Union Pacific Denver and Gulf Railway on March 18, 1890. The UPD&D was operated by the UP Railway until the UP fell into receivership on October 13, 1893. The UPD&G was run by the UP's receivers until an independent receiver was appointed on December 18, 1893. This independent receiver was Frank Trumbull who reorganized both the UPD&G and The DL&G (see below) into the Colorado and Southern Railway on December 29, 1898. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad was incorporated in Colorado Territory on June 16, 1873. This company constructed the lines from Denver to Leadville and Gunnison and also became controlled by the UP. The DSP&P was sold at foreclosure to The Denver, Leadville & Gunnison Railway which was incorporated in Colorado on July 17, 1889, on July 17, 1889. The DL&G became part of the UP receivership on October 13, 1893 and had an independent receiver appointed to it (also Frank Trumbull) on December 31, 1898. The Denver, Leadville & Gunnison was acquired by The Colorado and Southern Railway on December 28, 1898. The Colorado and Southern Railway was an independent Company for about 10 years until control of the C&S was acquired by the CB&Q in 1908. From that time on, the C&S had to march to Chicago's tune and the 3' gauge main line began disappearing, the first segment in 1910 with the closure of the Alpine Tunnel and the last segment on August 25, 1943 with the conversion to Standard Gauge of the Leadville to Climax branch. If you would like more information, I have a 5 page history with more detail, if you'd like to e-mail me, I'll gladly send it to you. I have been working on the longer version, but I'm not through with it yet, I'm up to page 97 and still counting. Rick Steele

Friends, 
Thank you for requesting this C&S history from me. This is based on the 
1917 ICC Valuations done to every railroad in the US. This has taken me 
years (since 1981) to compile as I have made a historical "sketch" like 
this for every railroad evaluated by the ICC and published in their 
public records.  I have literally hundreds of files.  This C&S file is 
a short excerpt from the larger CB&Q valuation.  If you have a favorite 
railroad and want me to send you a short "biography" like this, please 
e-mail me and I will be happy to oblige you.  Please let me know whether 
you would like this in WP or MS Word format.  

I had to create my own "shorthand" for this project and it came out as 
follows:
