Boreas Pass Railroad Day

Calendar | Full list of events )

Como, CO.

Spend a day learning about the railroading history (1879 to 1937) of Como, Boreas Pass, and South Park.
 
Visit buildings frequented by the railroaders and their families when trains were the modern way to travel. Narrow gauge trains brought supplies to the mining towns and hauled the rich ores out; they brought townspeople into the city to handle obligations or to visit family and friends; they brought tourists and new residents into the mountains.
 
Open for tours on Railroad Day are the roundhouse, depot, eating house/bed & breakfast, and the section house on Boreas Pass; and High Line Railroad Park in Breckenridge.
 
An authentic reproduction of a narrow gauge handcar is ready all day for visitors to ride and help power in front of the depot. This is a free event.
