Denver, South Park & Pacific Railroad  


NEWS --> New photos uploaded March 24, 2014... see "2013 Track Work" and "Winter on the DSP&PRR". As of September 1, 2013 we have laid over 3,940 ft of mainline track. On the Boreas Pass Wye we have laid track past the 2nd wye switch out onto the bridge and are currently grading the back leg of the wye. Once we get the wye completed we will be able to turn trains at the top and have bi-directional operation. Thanks go out to some hard working folks from Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad is a 7 1/2" gauge railroad located in the beautiful South Park area west of Colorado Springs, Colorado. The railroad is currently under construction with a planned mainline of over 6,000 ft of track. The minimum radius is 75 feet with a maximum grade of 3.5%. The topography of the area is rolling hills with approximately 30% coverage in Ponderosa Pine. Typically we are laying track on Saturdays late April thru late December. Construction trains are running out to the ever advancing railhead carrying track and cross ties. The Boreas Pass Wye will allow trains to be turned at the top. This will give us bi-directional train operation from the Como Wye at the bottom to the Boreas Pass Wye at the top... about 4,000 ft one way or 8,000 ft round trip. The railroad is divided into a Northern and Southern division. Currently the Southern Division has over 3,940 ft of mainline track laid in place and about 4,000 ft of roadbed fully graded.

We have an unloading device capable of handling a Northern locomotive. The 20 ft. turntable is installed and is operable. Additionally two swinging gate bridges are in place and operable.
