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 8,000 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 now allows 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 4,330 ft one way or 8,660 ft round trip. The railroad is divided into a Northern and Southern division. The Southern Division is now fully operational with over 4,330 ft of mainline track laid in place.

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.
