DENVER RAILS PICTURE OF THE DAY
 See yesterday's Picture of the Day 
Center for Transportation and Commerce No. 555 Built in 1922 (ALCO) she is a Consolidation-type 2-8-0 oil-fired steam locomotive that was originally Magma Arizona RR No. 5 and subsequently Oregon, Pacific & Eastern (their No. 5), from whom acquired in 1968. The first 2-8-0 was built by Matthias Baldwin in 1866 and the "Consolidation" nomenclature was in honor of the consolidation of several railroads into the Lehigh Valley RR, a major coal hauler. Behind her on track 3 are tank cars and cabooses.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Denver Rails is a website dedicated to capturing images of the railroads of Denver and the West. Whenever I travel I try to grab a snapshot of some of the vanishing traces of the railroad history. This site was created for displaying my collection.

In addition, I have compiled a database of railroad things to ride, see, and visit throughout the U.S. I hope it will be a tool for planning vacations, finding attractions and making memories. I don't charge anything for listings on my site so if you note something missing please let me know or submit the information yourself. Instructions are on the database main page.

Browse around and let me know what you think. Corrections and suggestions are always welcome.
