See yesterday's Picture of the Day
D&RGW Boxcar 3132 measuring 30' over the end sills and 7'7" over the side sills. Cargo capacity 50,000 lbs. The car carried silica sand and was marked with large "S" to avoid potential contamination. Car 3132 currently bears the 1926-1936 lettering style, and is painted with the Royal Gorge/Moffat Tunnel herald introduced in 1936. When acquired by the NPS, the car was painted in the flying Rio Grande scheme of the 1939-1948 era. [http://www.hscl.cr.nps.gov/insidenps/summary.asp]Picture by Rich A. on 08/19/2009

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.-Mike Stutz email@example.com
