DENVER RAILS PICTURE OF THE DAY
See yesterday's Picture of the Day
The Homestake Mining Company used the J.B. Haggin to haul ore from 1879 to 1900 when it was replaced by compressed air locomotives. In 1932 a portion of the wall of the Adams Museum was removed, tracks were laid into the building and the J.B. Haggin chugged into the museum under its own power where it has remained ever since.

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.
