Georgetown Loop Railroad

The Georgetown Loop Railroad is a narrow gauge line which runs between Georgetown, Colorado (USA) and the town of Silver Plume, high on the mountain to the west of Georgetown. This former mining (and now tourist) railroad runs a Shay engine and even stops at an old silver mine which can be toured by passengers on the way.

This shot shows the train crossing the Devil's Gate Viaduct, a trestle that rises nearly 100 feet above the tracks below to form a loop.

The photo was taken in August of 2002.
Great shot!! The trestle that the train is running on was actually built in the 1980's(!), when the Georgetown Loop Railroad started running again.
